AARMS COVID-19 Seminar: JC Loredo-Osti (MUN)

June 3, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The Euler’s method and the Gillespie algorithm to simulate a stochastic SIR model (part 1)

JC Loredo-Osti (MUN)

In this presentation, we will discuss the implementation of the two more common procedures to simulate a stochastic compartmentalised epidemic model, the Euler’s method and the Gillespie algorithm. We will also talk about extensions to the stochastic SIR model, as for example, the two ways to include a compartment for asymptomatic cases as well as extensions to account for a non-homogeneous process to accommodate for a non-exponential serial time distribution.

This is a virtual zoom seminar.  If you would like to attend, please email the organizers for connection details.
