Abstract:

Networks have become a valuable tool in analyzing biological systems. In particular, network models are increasingly used to model epidemics. I will first give an overview of simple stochastic models on networks. Then, I will discuss the results of simulations on a variety of networks and connections between the statistics of the epidemic process and the statistics of the underlying network.
