The friendship paradox
out of 5 stars
10 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Winfried Just, Hannah Lea Callender, Drew LaMar
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...
Exploring random regular graphs with IONTW
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...
Exploring Erdős-Rényi random graphs with IONTW
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...
A quick tour of IONTW
30 Jan 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Winfried Just, Ying Xin
In this module we guide you through some of the capabilities of IONTW. Highlights include the types of networks supported, setting up various types of models of disease transmission, observing the resulting dynamics, and collecting statistics on the outcomes. Along the way, the module also...
