Robust parameter determination in epidemic models with analytical descriptions of uncertainties
Compartmental equations are primary tools in disease spreading studies. Their predictions are accurate for large populations but disagree with empirical and simulated data for finite populations, where uncertainties become a relevant factor. Starting from the agent-based approach, we investigate the role of uncertainties and autocorrelation functions in SIS epidemic model, including their relationship with epidemiological variables. We find new differential equations that take uncertainties into account. The findings provide improved predictions to the SIS model and it can offer new insights for emerging diseases.
