Statistics Seminars: Quasi-stationary distributions of some infection models

Presented by D Clancy (University of Liverpool),

27 May 2005 00:00 in CM107

"I will briefly outline a stochastic ordering result for the classical SIS (Susceptible - Infected - Susceptible) infection model. I will then describe how the SIS model may be extended to incorporate indirect transmission of infection via free-living infectious stages (eg environmental bacteria). For the extended model I will discuss limiting conditional distributions of interest, questions of existence, Normal approximation, a simulation method using a piecewise-deterministic Markov process approximation, and the effect of indirect transmission upon persistence time of the infection.
