Self-organizing behavior in a lattice model for co-evolution of virus and immune systems.

Abstract

We propose a lattice model for the co-evolution of a virus population and an adaptive immune system. We show that, under some natural assumptions, both probability distribution of the virus population and the distribution of activity of the immune system tend during the evolution to a self-organized critical state.
