Network theory links behavioral information flow with contained epidemic outbreaks

20:00 EDT 13 Jun 2018 | AAAS

(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) Over the last two decades, large-scale outbreaks of infectious diseases have resulted in high levels of morbidity, mortality, and overall economic burden for affected regions. As complex networks become increasingly popular tools of study, researchers are applying network theory to the field of epidemiology. In an article in the SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics, researchers employ a concrete interplay model in quenched multiplex networks to study the connection between adaptive human behavior and epidemic spread.
