Infectious agents in heterogeneous systems: When friends matter

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Many real world diseases are transmitted through close personal contact. An accurate model of such transmission depends on an accurate model of the complex web of close personal interactions in the community. We review recent work in this area, argue that it is important to take this structure into account and demonstrate several examples where doing so yields nontrivial results for the prediction and control of disease transmission. © 2013 IEEE.
