  • The current survey paper concerns stochastic mathematical models for the spread of infectious diseases. It starts with the simplest setting of a homogeneous population in which a transmittable disease spreads during a short outbreak. Assuming a large population some important features are presented: branching process approximation, basic reproduction number $R_0$, and final size of an outbreak. Some extensions towards realism are then discussed: models for endemicity, various heterogeneities… CONTINUE READING
