Publication# Modeling and Controlling epidemics : a graph perspective

Abstract

The social and economical impact a virus has in a population is not negligible. For this reason, gaining a theoretical understanding of the behavior of a virus is of prime importance. This project is going to be divided in several parts. First, we will discuss the topology of different graphs. Secondly, we are going to talk about the propagation of a virus on a graph, and the optimal nodes to do that. We will introduce the notion of cost function, and how relevant it is. Lastly, we will be talking about vaccinating a graph.

Epidemic

An epidemic (from Greek ἐπί epi "upon or above" and δῆμος demos "people") is the rapid spread of disease to a large number of hosts in a given population within a short period of time. For example, i

Planar graph

In graph theory, a planar graph is a graph that can be embedded in the plane, i.e., it can be drawn on the plane in such a way that its edges intersect only at their endpoints. In other words, it c

Graph theory

In mathematics, graph theory is the study of graphs, which are mathematical structures used to model pairwise relations between objects. A graph in this context is made up of vertices (also called no
