- SIR dynamics in random networks with heterogeneous connectivityErik Volz
Department of Integrative Biology, University of Texas, Austin, TX, USA
J Math Biol 56:293-310. 2008..Finally, the dynamic equations provide an alternative way of determining the epidemic threshold where large-scale epidemics are expected to occur, and below which epidemic behavior is limited to finite-sized outbreaks...

Department of Integrative Biology, University of Texas at Austin, 1 University Station, C0930, Austin, TX 78712, USA
Proc Biol Sci 274:2925-33. 2007..Using epidemiological and sexual contact data from an Atlanta high school, we demonstrate the application of this method for forecasting and controlling sexually transmitted disease outbreaks...
- Epidemic thresholds in dynamic contact networksErik Volz
Integrative Biology, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX 78712, USA
J R Soc Interface 6:233-41. 2009..We show that social mixing fundamentally changes the epidemiological landscape and, consequently, that static network approximations of dynamic networks can be inadequate...
