A note on the maximum size of a closed epidemic


Barbour, A D (1975). A note on the maximum size of a closed epidemic. Royal Statistical Society. Journal. Series B: Statistical Methodology, 37(3):459-460.

Abstract

Daniels successfully approximated the distribution of the maximum number of infectives during an epidemic in a closed population, by reducing the problem to a curved boundary problem for Brownian motion. The purpose of this note is to present a simpler way of tackling the latter problem, using the invariance properties of Brownian motion.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
