Epidemiological models for heterogeneous populations proportionate mixing parameter estimation and immunization programs

, : Epidemiological models for heterogeneous populations proportionate mixing parameter estimation and immunization programs. Mathematical Biosciences 84(1): 85-118

Deterministic models are presented for epidemics which occur quickly and for long-term endemic diseases where births and deaths must be considered. Contact-rate matrices are formulated in terms of activity levels and subpopulation sizes by using a proportionate-mixing assumption. Methods are presented for estimating epidemic and endemic parameters in both homogeneous and heterogeneous populations. Other authors' approaches to contact-rate matrices and spatial heterogeneity are described. Three immunization programs are analyzed for a model of a spatially heterogeneous population and are compared in a "city and villages" example.

We examined over the Israel Seismic Network (ISN) the seismogram envelopes vs. group velocity V = R/T, where R is the epicenter distance and T the travel time, and found out a persistent difference between quarry blasts and earthquakes. The data i...

Animal models of depression-like behavior produce similar neuronal rearrangemen...
