Statistics Seminars: Stochastic SIR epidemic models on populations with network structure

Presented by David Sirl, University of Nottingham

9 March 2015 14:00 in CM221

I shall begin by briefly motivating and introducing epidemic models
where the population has some sort of random network structure. Then I
will introduce a couple of particular random network models which are
sufficiently complex to incorporate some desirable network features, yet
simple enough that an SIR (susceptible -> infective ->
removed/recovered) epidemic upon the network submits to asymptotic
analysis of many of its final size properties. I will also address the
issue of incorporating vaccination into these models.
