The use of network models to describe the impact of local spatial structure on the spread of infections is discussed. In particular, we focus on small-world networks, within which the pattern of interactions can be varied from being entirely local to being entirely global as a single parameter is changed. Analysis approaches from graph theory, statistical physics and mathematical epidemiology are discussed. Simulation results are presented that highlight the surprising findings of Watts and… Expand
