Virus Spread in Networks

Project description

A new theory of non-Markovian epidemic processes

The Coronavirus crisis revealed a number of shortcomings within traditional epidemiology. For instance, it ignores the human contact graph and implicitly assumes a homogeneous population without specific graph structure. From a physics perspective, the two most important processes are how the virus jumps from A to B and how A and B make contact. While most studies on epidemics in networks implicitly assume Markovian type of spreading dynamics, for which mathematical theories are well developed, this is not the case with the COVID-19. In this context, the ERC-funded ViSioN project will develop the theory of non Markovian epidemic processes in order to tell how long a pandemic will last and when a peak will occur.
