Percolation methods for SEIR epidemics on graphs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We review several connections between percolation and SEIR epidemic models. In the first part we analyze the role of percolation in representing or approximating an epidemic model; in the second part we discuss the role of percolation in modelling the random networks on which the spread of the infectious diseases takes place. At the end, we propose a class of models which are mathematically treatable and at the same time incorporate most of the desirable features of epidemic modelling.
