Relevance of backtracking paths in epidemic spreading on networks

25 Oct 2018 Castellano Claudio Pastor-Satorras Romualdo

The understanding of epidemics on networks has greatly benefited from the recent application of message-passing approaches, which allow to derive exact results for irreversible spreading (i.e. diseases with permanent acquired immunity) in locally-tree like topologies. This success has suggested the application of the same approach to reversible epidemics, for which an individual can contract the epidemic and recover repeatedly... (read more)
