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...

2. 10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

In this module we explore ODE models of disease transmission and compare some of their predictions with those of agent-based models. Parts of this material will be referenced in later modules.Level: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students of mathematics or biology.DownloadStudent copy (no...

3. 10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

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...

4. 10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

In this module we explore in detail the distribution of the sizes of connected components of Erdős-Rényi random graphs and discover the reasons for the similarities and differences between disease transmission on Erdős-Rényi networks and complete graphs that were observed in...

5. 10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

In this module we introduce a construction of generic random graphs for a given degree sequence or degree distribution and explore whether mixing between hosts who belong to different subpopulations is assortative or disassortative.Level: Undergraduate students of biology or...

6. 10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

The spread of infectious diseases is inherently a stochastic process and the materials posted at this web site heavily rely on probability theory. Here we review some basic concepts of probability theory for easy reference. The material is restricted to notions that are used in teaching...

7. 10 May 2015 | Teaching & Reference Material

The main purpose of this document is to give a brief but mathematically rigorous description of the network-based models of transmission of infectious diseases that are studied on this web site. Readers will be able to find a much more detailed development of this material in our book chapters...
