The **EpiModel** package provides tools for simulating mathematical models of infectious disease dynamics. Epidemic model classes include deterministic compartmental models, stochastic agent-based models, and stochastic network models. Network models use the robust statistical methods of temporal exponential-family random graph models (ERGMs) from the Statnet suite of software packages in R. Standard templates for epidemic modeling include SI, SIR, and SIS disease types. EpiModel features an API for extending these templates to address novel scientific research aims.

This vignette is a placeholder for the **EpiModel** tutorials and documentation hosted online and external to the package to minimize testing and building timing. Tutorials may be found at the **EpiModel** website (http://epimodel.org).

A good place to start learning about **EpiModel** is the main methods paper. It is published *Journal of Statistical Software* at the reference below.

Within the package, please consult the extensive help documentation:
