More Models of Infection: It's Epidemic
March/April 2004 (vol. 6 no. 2)
pp. 50-56
Dianne P. O'Leary, University of Maryland

In the last issue, we used Monte Carlo simulations and Markov models to gain insight into a simple model of an infection's spread. We discuss this further in the solution section of this column, but first we develop some alternate models of epidemics, based on differential equations.

Index Terms:
infection models, computer models
