In this module we introduce and explore the structure of random regular graphs. Moreover, we compare the predictions of SIR-models on random regular contact networks with the predictions of corresponding models on Erdős-Rényi networks.

Level: Undergraduate students of biology or mathematics for Sections 1 and 3; advanced undergraduate and graduate students of mathematics for optional Section 2

Requires: Section 2 of Module Exploring contact patterns between two subpopulations and either Subsection 1.1 of Module Exploring Erdős-Rényi random graphs with IONTW or Module 6 of [1]. The optional Section 2 relies on additional material from Module Exploring Erdős-Rényi random graphs with IONTW.
