Title: End of an SIR epidemic on a configuration model network
Abstract: We consider an SIR (Susceptible-Infective-Recovered) epidemic on a static (configuration model) random graph. We describe the final stages of the epidemic and analyse the time until extinction of the epidemic. Furthermore, we consider the effect of control measures, such as vaccination on the duration of the epidemic. The analysis heavily relies on theory on branching processes.
