  6. The friendship paradox

    10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

    In this module we introduce the so-called friendship paradox and illustrate how it affects disease transmission on networks that exhibit this phenomenon.You also need to download the input file degreesFP.txt that will be used in this module.Level: Advanced undergraduate and graduate...

  7. The preferential attachment model

    10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

    Many empirically studied networks have approximately so-called power-law or scale-free degree distributions. In Section 1 we formally define such distributions and explore some of their properties. We also introduce and briefly compare two methods for constructing random...

  8. The replacement number

    10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

    In this module we introduce the important notion of the replacement number, which generalizes the basic reproductive number R0. We investigate how this number behaves near the start of an outbreak in models based on the uniform mixing assumption and in models that assume a contact network that is...
