Estimation of the Basic Reproduction Number by Period Dependent Branching Process
Mojtaba Moradi *
Abstract:   (7515 Views)

The basic reproduction number is the average number of secondary infection cases generated by a single primary case in a susceptible population. Estimation of the basic reproduction number is important in medical studies. In this paper, we describe a new method for estimating the basic reproduction number by branching processes. Finally, we apply this estimator on real data reported by the National Center for Biotechnology Information in the USA.

Keywords: Branching Process, Basic Reproduction Number, Epidemiology
