Multi-layer network approach in modeling epidemics in an urban town
TLDR
A multi-layer undirected weighted network, where vertices are the individuals of a town that tend to interact locally, is proposed, which indicates that locking down "friends" layer has the highest impact in lockdown scenarios.
Investigating Dynamics of COVID-19 Spread and Containment with Agent-Based Modeling
TLDR
This work revisits Epstein’s “coupled contagion dynamics of fear and disease” model in order to extend and adapt it to explore fear-driven behavioral adaptations and their impact on efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
Investigating dynamics of COVID-19 spread and containment with agent-based modeling
TLDR
An epidemic agent-based model that simulates the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic is shown to be able to generate an important aspect of the pandemic: multiple waves of infection.
I NVESTIGATING DYNAMICS OF COVID-19 SPREAD AND CONTAINMENT WITH AGENT - BASED MODELING
Governments, policy makers and officials around the globe are trying to mitigate the effects and progress of the COVID-19 pandemic by making decisions which will save the most lives and impose the
Re-Thinking the Role of Government Information Intervention in the COVID-19 Pandemic: An Agent-Based Modeling Analysis
TLDR
It is suggested that information intervention is indispensable for containing the outbreak of infectious disease, but its effectiveness depends on a complicated way on both external social/epidemic factors and the governments’ internal preferences and governance capability, for which more thorough investigations are needed in the future.
Effect of human behavior on the evolution of viral strains during an epidemic
TLDR
Using a stochastic SIR agent-based model, the co-evolution of two viral strains with cross-immunity, where the resident strain is symptomatic while the mutant strain is asymptomatic is investigated.
Structural modeling and phylogenetic analysis for infectious disease transmission pattern based on maximum likelihood tree approach
TLDR
This research proposes the Evolutionary tree analysis (ETA) for the molecular evolutionary genetic analysis to reduce medical risk factors and utilizes ETA with Markov Chain Bayesian Statistics (MCBS) approach to reconstruct transmission trees with sequence information.

The spread of awareness and its impact on epidemic outbreaks
TLDR
It is found that the impact of locally spreading awareness is amplified if the social network of potential infection events and the network over which individuals communicate overlap, especially so if the networks have a high level of clustering.
Towards a Characterization of Behavior-Disease Models
TLDR
A characterization of a set of prototypical mechanisms for self-initiated social distancing induced by local and non-local prevalence-based information available to individuals in the population by considering separate behavioral classes within the population is proposed.
Interactions among human behavior, social networks, and societal infrastructures: A Case Study in Computational Epidemiology
TLDR
This chapter describes a computer simulation based approach to study these issues using public health and computational epidemiology as an illustrative example and formulates game-theoretic and stochastic optimization problems that capture many of the problems that are study empirically.
Modeling human mobility responses to the large-scale spreading of infectious diseases
TLDR
A metapopulation model is formulated and analyzed that incorporates several scenarios of self-initiated behavioral changes into the mobility patterns of individuals that find that prevalence-based travel limitations do not alter the epidemic invasion threshold.
Adaptive human behavior in epidemiological models
TLDR
Results indicate that including adaptive human behavior significantly changes the predicted course of epidemics and that this inclusion has implications for parameter estimation and interpretation and for the development of social distancing policies.
The Talk of the Town: Modelling the Spread of Information and Changes in Behaviour
TLDR
A model in which awareness of the presence of a disease can spread in a population and influence the spread of the disease itself through protective measures that people can take is described.
On the dynamical interplay between awareness and epidemic spreading in multiplex networks
TLDR
The analysis of the interrelation between two processes accounting for the spreading of an epidemic, and the information awareness to prevent its infection, on top of multiplex networks reveals the phase diagram of the incidence of the epidemics and allows the evolution of the epidemic threshold depending on the topological structure of the multiplex and the inter correlation with the awareness process.
