Time to extinction in a two-host interaction model for the macroparasite Echinococcus granulosus


Heinzmann, D (2010). Time to extinction in a two-host interaction model for the macroparasite Echinococcus granulosus. In: González Velasco, M; Puerto, I M; Molina, M; Mota, M; Ramos, A. Workshop on Branching Processes and Their Applications. Berlin Heidelberg: Springer-Verlag, 257-266.

Abstract

An approximation is derived for the time to extinction in a sub-critical epidemic two-host interaction process for the macroparasite Echinococcus granulosus.
The argument is based on coupling the epidemic model with a two-type branching process, and then to approximate the time to extinction for the branching process.
It is shown that the approximate time is proportional to the logarithm of a weighted sum of the initially infectives in the host populations plus a Gumbel random variable.
The accuracy of the approximation is illustrated.

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.
