  • Ebola—challenge and revival of theoretical epidemiology: Why Extrapolations from early phases of epidemics are problematic

    Ebola—challenge and revival of theoretical epidemiology: Why Extrapolations from early phases of epidemics are problematic

    Solution curves of the SEIR model (3). Shown are the numbers of susceptible individuals S(t) (red), exposed individuals E(t) (blue), infectious individuals I(t) (green), and recovered or dead individuals R(t) (black). Expectation values <X(t)> (X ≡ S, E, I, R) are given in full color embedded in one-standard deviation error bands, <X(t)> ± σ(X(t)), with the limits in light color. The dashed lines refer to the solutions of the ordinary differential equation (ODE) (4), x(t) with x ≡ s, e, i, r, and the yellow dashed curve represents d(t) = i(t) + r(t). The disease in this case affects the entire population. Parameters: N = 1000, β = 0.5, k = 0.05, γ = 0.025, which correspond to a high basic reproductive number of R0 = 20. Initial conditions: S(0) = 990, I(0) = 10.

    Opinion dynamics with the contrarian deterministic effect and human mobility on lattice

    The average opinion m(t) evolves as the time step t elapses. The parameters of the system are: n=30,Ps=0.01, and Pm=0.01.

Complexity is a cross-disciplinary journal focusing on the rapidly expanding science of complex adaptive systems.

The journal covers methodological themes as chaos, genetic algorithms, cellular automata, neural networks, and evolutionary game theory. Papers treating applications in any area of natural science or human endeavor are welcome, and especially encouraged are papers integrating conceptual themes and applications that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries.
