epydemic: Epidemic simulations on networks in Python
epydemic is a Python library that implements simulations of epidemic
(and other) processes over networks. Epidemic processes are very
important in both network science and its applications. The most
common application is to study the ways in which diseases progress in
different network conditions, depending on their infectiousness and
epydemic provides the basic simulation machinery for performing
epidemic simulations under two different simulation regimes:
synchronous simulation in which time proceeds in discrete time
intervals, and stochastic or Gillespie simulations which are better
for handling a wider range of probabilities (but which are slightly
harder to specify).
You can install
epydemic directly from PyPi using
pip install epydemic
The master distribution of
epydemic is hosted on GitHub. To obtain a
copy, just clone the repo:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:simoninireland/epydemic.git cd epydemic python setup.py install
API documentation for epydemic is available on ReadTheDocs (please note the slightly different project name).
