We study numerically the variability of the outbreak of diseases on complex networks. We use a susceptible-infected model to simulate the disease spreading at short times in homogeneous and in scale-free networks. In both cases, we study the effect of initial conditions on the epidemic dynamics and its variability. The results display a time regime during which the prevalence exhibits a large sensitivity to noise. We also investigate the dependence of the infection time of a node on its degree… CONTINUE READING
