  title={Asymptotic-Preserving Neural Networks for multiscale hyperbolic models of epidemic spread},
  author={Giulia Bertaglia and Chuan Lu and Lorenzo Pareschi and Xueyu Zhu},
When investigating epidemic dynamics through differential models, the parameters needed to understand the phenomenon and to simulate forecast scenarios require a delicate calibration phase, often made even more challenging by the scarcity and uncertainty of the observed data reported by official sources. In this context, Physics-Informed Neural Networks (PINNs), by embedding the knowledge of the differential model that governs the physical phenomenon in the learning process, can effectively address… 



Hyperbolic models for the spread of epidemics on networks: kinetic description and numerical methods

The development of hyperbolic transport models for the propagation in space of an epidemic phenomenon described by a classical compartmental dynamics are considered, and it is formally shown how such reaction-diffusion models are recovered in an appropriate diffusive limit.

Hyperbolic compartmental models for epidemic spread on networks with uncertain data: application to the emergence of Covid-19 in Italy

The ability of the model to correctly describe the spatial heterogeneity underlying the spread of an epidemic in a realistic city network is confirmed with a study of the outbreak of COVID-19 in Italy and its spread in the Lombardy Region.

Kinetic modelling of epidemic dynamics: social contacts, control with uncertain data, and multiscale spatial dynamics

The kinetic modeling of epidemic phenomena through the use of kinetic equations is extended to spatially dependent settings using multiscale transport models that can characterize the impact of movement dynamics on epidemic advancement on both one-dimensional networks and realistic two-dimensional geographic settings.

Analysis of a reaction-diffusion cholera epidemic model in a spatially heterogeneous environment

Spatial spread of COVID-19 outbreak in Italy using multiscale kinetic transport equations with uncertainty

A space-dependent multiscale model to describe the spatial spread of an infectious disease under uncertain data with particular interest in simulating the onset of the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy is introduced.

Kinetic models for epidemic dynamics with social heterogeneity

The kinetic model allows to clarify how a selective control can be assumed to achieve a minimal lockdown strategy by only reducing individuals undergoing a very large number of daily contacts and conducts numerical simulations which confirm the ability of the model to describe different phenomena characteristic of the rapid spread of an epidemic.

Identifiability and Predictability of Integer- and Fractional-Order Epidemiological Models Using Physics-Informed Neural Networks

We analyze a plurality of epidemiological models through the lens of physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) that enable us to identify multiple time-dependent parameters and to discover new

Pattern formation of an epidemic model with diffusion

Spatial pattern of an epidemic model with nonlinear incidence rates is investigated and force of infection, namely β, plays an important role in the spatial pattern and mathematical analysis and numerical results well extend the finding of pattern formation in the epidemic models.

Bi-fidelity stochastic collocation methods for epidemic transport models with uncertainties

This paper introduces a bi-fidelity approach to quantify uncertainty in spatially dependent epidemic models and considers the class of multiscale transport models recently introduced in [<xref ref-type="bibr" rid="b13">13</xref], as the high-f fidelity reference and use simple two-velocity discrete models for low- fidelity evaluations.

A multiscale model of virus pandemic: Heterogeneous interactive entities in a globally connected world

This paper is devoted to the multidisciplinary modelling of a pandemic initiated by an aggressive virus, specifically the so-called SARS–CoV–2 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, corona virus n.2. The
