The random polycondensation of telechelic linear chains cured with tri- and tetrafunctional cross-linkers has been simulated. Calculations are done for both bulk and solution reactions; critical points are located by different methods, with results in good agreement with experiment. Critical exponents 0 and 7 vary from system to system, with average values 0 = 0.300 ± 0.024 and γ=1.77±0.16. The average value C_/C+ = 13.58 ± 3.50 is slightly larger than that from standard percolation.
