What conditions allow a single infected person to create an epidemic in a homogeneous population of susceptible individuals if the pathogenic organism is fast-replicating and has a sequenced genome that is littered with other bacterial genes?
- differential equation models for infectious disease (Stephen P. and John Guckenheimer. Dynamic Models in Biology. New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 2006. 183-215)
- a simple epidemic model (Neuhauser, Claudia. Calculus for Biology and Medicine. New Jersey: Prentice Hall, 2000. 387-389)
- removal rates
