The graph and network theory as a tool to model and simulate the dynamics of infectious diseases

Cezary Bartosiak, Rafał Kasprzyk and Andrzej Najgebauer


In this paper, we consider the utilization of the graph and network theory in the field of modeling and simulating the dynamics of infectious diseases. We describe basic principles and tools and show how we can use them to fight against the spread of this phenomenon. We also present our software solutions that can be used to support decision-making activities.
