Heterogeneity in contact networks and its effect on disease dynamics

Author(s): Salathe M


Host contact networks are the roadmaps of infectious disease spread. Much theoretical work has clarified which structural aspects about the networks are important for disease dynamics prediction, but progress has been hampered by a lack of data. Recently, however, novel technologies have allowed to measure host contact networks in great detail. In this talk, I'll give an overview of the field with equal time devoted to theoretical and empirical results.
