Hybrid epidemic spreading - from Internet worms to HIV infection

Doctoral thesis English OPEN

  • Publisher: UCL (University College London)

Epidemic phenomena are ubiquitous, ranging from infectious diseases, computer viruses, to information dissemination. Epidemics have traditionally been studied as a single spreading process, either in a fully mixed population or on a network. Many epidemics, however, are... View more
