Analysis of SIR Epidemic Models

Muhammad Hanif Durad, Muhammad Naveed Akhtar

Abstract


Modeling epidemics has played a vital role in predicting the impact of a disease in a population and the ability to overcome it. The objective of this paper is to introduce the concept of agent based modeling classification for SIR epidemic model, suggest a new discrete-time agent based SIR model and formally document Gillespie’s Algorithm based SIR epidemic model. Furthermore a computational analysis of chemical master equation and Gillespie’s algorithm based SIR models
has been performed showing that the use of latter results in considerable reduction
in execution time
