This is the R version of program 7.8 from page 285 of "Modeling Infectious Disease in humans and animals" by Keeling & Rohani.
All parameters must be positive.
list
. The first element, *$model
, is the model function. The second, third and fourth elements are the vectors *$pars
, *$init
and *$time
, containing the pars
, init
and time
arguments of the function. The fifth element *$results
is a data.frame
with up to as many rows as elements in time. First column contains the time. Second, third and fourth columns contain the number of susceptibles, infectious and susceptibleinfectious pairs.
