SIR Model

Tony Weisstein

From the Biological ESTEEM collection

ESTEEM Category



This worksheet implements an SIR (Susceptible/ Infected/ Resistant) model of epidemiology for vector-borne diseases. Up to three microbial strains with different virulence and transmission parameters can be modeled and the results graphed. Originally designed to explore coevolution of myxoma and rabbits, the model is easily generalized to other systems.

Editor's note:
