Dangerous connections: on binding site models of infectious disease dynamics

We formulate models for the spread of infection on networks that are amenable to analysis in the large population limit. We distinguish three different levels: (1) binding sites, (2) individuals, and (3) the population. In the tradition of physiologically structured population models, the formulation starts on the individual level. Influences from the 'outside world' on an individual are captured by environmental variables. These environmental variables are population level quantities. A key… CONTINUE READING
