Inferring Contagion Patterns in Social Contact Networks with Limited Infection Data

  title={Inferring Contagion Patterns in Social Contact Networks with Limited Infection Data},
  author={David Fajardo and Lauren M. Gardner},
The spread of infectious disease is an inherently stochastic process. As such, real time control and prediction methods present a significant challenge. For diseases which spread through direct human interaction, (e.g., transferred from infected to susceptible individuals) the contagion process can be modeled on a social-contact network where individuals are represented as nodes, and contacts between individuals are represented as links. The model presented in this paper seeks to identify the… CONTINUE READING
