The aim of the paper is to describe a model of the development of the Covid-19 contamination of the population of a country or a region. For this purpose a special branching process with two types of individuals is considered. This model is intended to use only the observed daily statistics to estimate the main parameter of the contamination and to give a prediction of the mean value of the non-observed population of the contaminated individuals. This is a serious advantage in comparison with… 
Branching stochastic processes as models of Covid-19 epidemic development
Two models of Covid-19 infection dynamics intended to use only the observed daily statistics to estimate the main parameter of the infection and to give a prediction of the mean value of the non-observed population of the infected individuals.
Evaluation of the number of COVID-19 undiagnosed infected using source of infection measurements
This work simulated multiple models currently used to study the COVID-19 pandemic and computed the relation between the fraction of diagnosed infected out of all infected, and the fractions of infected with known contaminatorOut of all diagnosed infected, which is consistently linear and model independent.

Epidemic Models for COVID-19 during the First Wave from February to May 2020: a Methodological Review
A methodological review of epidemiological models for the propagation of the COVID-19 pandemic during the early months of the outbreak from February to May 2020 and an opportunity to witness how the scientific community reacted to this unique situation is provided.
Persistence and extinction criteria of Covid-19 pandemic: India as a case study
Abstract Novel coronavirus has altered the socio-economic condition of the whole world through its devastating effects on the human population. Mathematical models and computation techniques may play
Mathematical Perspective of Covid-19 Pandemic: Disease Extinction Criteria in Deterministic and Stochastic Models
A deterministic epidemic model of four compartments classified based on the health status of the populations of a given country to capture the disease progression is considered and it is proved that the infected population of the stochastic system tends to zero exponentially almost surely if the basic reproduction number is less than unity.
A fractional model for the COVID-19 pandemic: Application to Italian data
A probabilistic SIRD model is provided for the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy, where the infection, recovery and death rates to be random and the underlying random factor is driven by a fractional Brownian motion.
A cyber-physical system approach for model based predictive control and modeling of COVID-19 in India
Abstract The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has become a global health crisis due to spread of the infection all over the world. It is important to understand the transmission dynamics of
On Aggregation of Subcritical Galton–Watson Branching Processes with Regularly Varying Immigration
Abstract. We study an iterated temporal and contemporaneous aggregation of N independent copies of a strongly stationary subcritical Galton–Watson branching process with regularly varying immigration


Branching Processes with Two Types Emigration and State-Dependent Immigration
We consider branching processes allowing a random migration component. In each generation the following three situations are possible: (i) with probability p - family emigration and individual
Critical Branching Processes with Random Migration
A new class of branching processes allowing a random migration component in every generation is considered: with probability p two types of emigration are possible — a random number of families and a
Statistical inference for branching processes
Using one of the simplest possible cases, this book illustrates the problems of statistical inference that can arise when the standard assumption of independent observations is relaxed. It contains
Transient processes in cell proliferation kinetics
This is a memorial survey paper on some joint works with Andrei Yu. Yakovlev† in the field of branching processes and their applications in cell proliferation kinetics. The following topics are
