We consider a stochastic Susceptible-Exposed-Infected-Recovered (SEIR) epidemiological model with a contact rate that fluctuates seasonally. Through the use of a nonlinear, stochastic projection, we are able to analytically determine the lower dimensional manifold on which the deterministic and stochastic dynamics correctly interact. Our method produces a low dimensional stochastic model that captures the same timing of disease outbreak and the same amplitude and phase of recurrent behavior… 
A Framework for Inferring Unobserved Multistrain Epidemic Subpopulations Using Synchronization Dynamics
A new method is proposed to infer unobserved epidemic subpopulations by exploiting the synchronization properties of multistrain epidemic models and motivating the use of synchronization to predict unobserved primary infectives.
Inferring unobserved multistrain epidemic sub-populations using synchronization dynamics
A new method is proposed to infer unobserved epidemic sub-populations by exploiting the synchronization properties of multistrain epidemic models and motivating the use of synchronization to predict unobserved primary infectives.
Outbreak and Extinction Dynamics in Stochastic Populations
OUTBREAK AND EXTINCTION DYNAMICS IN STOCHASTIC POPULATIONS by Garrett T. Nieddu Each piece of work herein examines nonlinear population dynamics using methods from deterministic dynamical systems,
Effects of quasiperiodic forcing in epidemic models
It is argued that occurrence of SNAs gives an opportunity of asymptotic predictability of epidemic growth even when the underlying dynamics is strange, as a function of quasiperiodic modulation strength.
Extinction pathways and outbreak vulnerability in a stochastic Ebola model
A stochastic EVD model is built and explicitly consider the impacts of an animal reservoir on the disease persistence, which provides an improved understanding of outbreak and extinction dynamics in zoonotic diseases, such as EVD.

The Network Based-SEIR model is proposed, and is able to estimate the number of infected more accurately than the classic SEIR model, which is much higher than the actual number.
Be-CoDiS: A Mathematical Model to Predict the Risk of Human Diseases Spread Between Countries—Validation and Application to the 2014–2015 Ebola Virus Disease Epidemic
A novel deterministic spatial–temporal model, called Between-Countries Disease Spread (Be-CoDiS), to study the evolution of human diseases within and between countries and its main interesting characteristics are the consideration of the movement of people between countries, the control measure effects and the use of time-dependent coefficients adapted to each country.

A novel spatial and temporal model, called Be-CoDiS (BetweenCOuntries Disease Spread), to study the evolution of human diseases between countries and to simulate the spread of a particular disease and identify risk zones worldwide.


Accurate noise projection for reduced stochastic epidemic models
The solution of this reduced stochastic dynamical system yields excellent agreement, both in amplitude and phase, with the solution of the original Stochastic system for a temporal scale that is orders of magnitude longer than the typical relaxation time.
Seasonal dynamics of recurrent epidemics
Despite the mathematical intractability of the forced SIR model, a new threshold effect is identified and given clear analytical conditions for predicting the occurrence of either a future epidemic outbreak, or a ‘skip’—a year in which an epidemic fails to initiate.
Dynamics of measles epidemics: Estimating scaling of transmission rates using a time series sir model
Before the development of mass-vaccination campaigns, measles exhibited persistent fluctuations (endemic dynamics) in large British cities, and recurrent outbreaks (episodic dynamics) in smaller
Stochastic amplification in epidemics
A stochastic theory for the major dynamical transitions in epidemics from regular to irregular cycles is presented, which relies on the discrete nature of disease transmission and low spatial coupling to show how the amplification of noise varies across these transitions.
The Interplay between Determinism and Stochasticity in Childhood Diseases
It is demonstrated that epidemics of whooping cough are strongly influenced by stochasticity; fully deterministic approaches cannot achieve even a qualitative fit to the observed data.
Noise, nonlinearity and seasonality: the epidemics of whooping cough revisited
House data on the incubation period is used in order to parametrize more realistic distributions of the latent and infectious periods and it is demonstrated that previously reported phenomena result from transients following the interaction between the stable annual attractor and unstable multiennial solutions.
Dynamical epidemic suppression using stochastic prediction and control.
An adaptive control scheme is derived that prevents large outbreaks from occurring in a model of epidemic outbreaks, where the outbreaks appear randomly.
Exciting chaos with noise: unexpected dynamics in epidemic outbreaks
In a study of the SEIR model, which predicts epidemic outbreaks in childhood diseases, it is shown how chaotic dynamics can be attained by adding stochastic perturbations at parameters where chaos does not exist apriori.
The Modeling of Global Epidemics: Stochastic Dynamics and Predictability
A stochastic computational framework for the modeling of the global spreading of infectious diseases that takes advantage of the complete International Air Transport Association 2002 database complemented with census population data is put forward.
Epidemic dynamics and endemic states in complex networks.
A dynamical model for the spreading of epidemics in complex networks that implies that scale-free networks are prone to the spreading and the persistence of infections whatever spreading rate the epidemic agents might possess.
