Hybrid Agent-Based and Equation Based Model for Infectious Disease Spread (version 1.0.0)

Our model is hybrid agent-based and equation based model for human air-borne infectious diseases measles. It follows an SEIR (susceptible, exposed,infected, and recovered) type compartmental model with the agents moving be-tween the four state relating to infectiousness. However, the disease model canswitch back and forth between agent-based and equation based depending onthe number of infected agents. Our society model is specific using the datato create a realistic synthetic population for a county in Ireland. The modelincludes transportation with agents moving between their current location anddesired destination using predetermined destinations or destinations selectedusing a gravity model.

Release Notes

Detailed model documentation can be found in the ODD and model documentation documents.
To run the model with the provided population and enviornment click “setup-loadworld” and “go”. This will simulate a measles outbreak in the county Leitrim, Ireland. The model will run until no agents are exposed or infected. A behaviorspace is also setup to run the model 300 time and record important output variables.
