We introduce a numerical method to solve epidemic models on the underlying topology of complex networks. The approach exploits the mean-field-like rate equations describing the system and allows us to work with very large system sizes, where Monte Carlo simulations are useless due to memory needs. We then study the susceptible-infected-removed epidemiological model on assortative networks, providing numerical evidence of the absence of epidemic thresholds. Besides, the time profiles of the… CONTINUE READING
