A simple computational approach to the Susceptible-Infected-Recovered (SIR) epidemic model via the Laplace-Adomian Decomposition Method
A series representation of the solution of the SIR model is obtained by using the Laplace-Adomian Decomposition Method to solve the basic evolution equation of the model.
Series solution of the Susceptible-Infected-Recovered (SIR) epidemic model with vital dynamics via the Adomian and Laplace-Adomian Decomposition Methods
The series representations of the time evolution of the SIR model with vital dynamics are compared with the exact numerical solutions of the model, and it is found that, at least for a specific range of parameters, there is a good agreement between the Adomian and Laplace-Adomian semianalytical solutions, and the numerical results.
Analytical solution of the SIR-model for the temporal evolution of epidemics. Part A: time-independent reproduction factor
We revisit the susceptible-infectious-recovered/removed (SIR) model which is one of the simplest compartmental models. Many epidemological models are derivatives of this basic form. While an analytic
Exact closed-form solution of a modified SIR model.
The exact analytical solution in closed form of a modified SIR system is presented. This is, to the best of our knowledge, the first closed-form solution for a three-dimensional deterministic

Analytical Parameter Estimation of the SIR Epidemic Model. Applications to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Novel analytical results and numerical algorithms suitable for parametric estimation of the SIR model are reported and it is proven that the explicit solution of the model requires the introduction of a new transcendental special function, describing the incidence.
Discrete SIR model on a homogeneous tree and its continuous limit
This paper concerns a stochastic Susceptible-Infected-Recovered (SIR) model for the spread of infectious disease on a homogeneous tree. Under general assumptions on infection rates and recovery times
The approximately universal shapes of epidemic curves in the Susceptible-Exposed-Infectious-Recovered (SEIR) model
The approach of Harko et al. is generalised to obtain an approximate semi-analytical solution of the Susceptible-Exposed-Infectious-Recovered (SEIR) model, implying an approximate characteristic timescale that is universal to all SEIR models, which only depends on the basic reproduction number and initial fraction of the population that is infectious.
Analytical solution of the SIR-model for the temporal evolution of epidemics: part B. Semi-time case
The earlier analytical analysis (part A) of the susceptible–infectious–recovered (SIR) epidemics model for a constant ratio k of infection to recovery rates is extended here to the semi-time case


Stochastic epidemic-type model with enhanced connectivity: exact solution
We present an exact analytical solution to a one-dimensional model of the susceptible–infected–recovered (SIR) epidemic type, with infection rates dependent on nearest-neighbor occupations. We use a
A note on Exact solution of SIR and SIS epidemic models
In this article we have successfully obtained an exact solution of a particular case of SIR and SIS epidemic models given by Kermack and Mckendrick [1] for constant population, which are described by
Stochastic fluctuations in the susceptible-infective-recovered model with distributed infectious periods.
A stochastic model of infection dynamics based on the Susceptible-Infective-Recovered (SIR) model, where the distribution of the recovery times can be tuned, interpolating between exponentially distributed recovery times, and recovery after a fixed infectious period is investigated.
SIRS Dynamics on Random Networks: Simulations and Analytical Models
It is shown that for parameter values in the oscillatory phase, and even for large system sizes, the simulations either die out or exhibit damped oscillations, depending on the initial conditions.
A New Method For Solving Epidemic Model
In this paper the problem of the spread of a non-fatal disease in a population which is assumed to have constant size over the period of the epidemic is considered. The differential transformation
