Adaptive-network models are typically studied using deterministic differential equations which approximately describe their dynamics. In simulations, however, the discrete nature of the network gives rise to intrinsic noise which can radically alter the system?s behaviour. In this paper we develop a method to predict the effects of stochasticity in adaptive networks by making use of a pair-based proxy model. The technique is developed in the context of an epidemiological model of a disease… Expand

Oscillating epidemics in a dynamic network model: stochastic and mean-field analysis

- Medicine, Mathematics

Bifurcation analysis of the pairwise ODE approximation and the network-based stochastic simulation is carried out, showing that three typical behaviours may occur; namely, oscillations can be observed besides disease-free or endemic steady states. Expand

Applying a new transition rate approximation that incorporates link dynamics, the theory of large deviations to stochastic network extinction is extended to predict extinction times and the methodology is applied to network models and it is discovered how mean extinction times scale with network parameters in Erdos-Renyi networks.

Using techniques from large-deviation theory, combined with a measurement of heterogeneity in the susceptible degree distribution at the endemic state, it is found that in the limit of small rewiring there is a sharp exponential reduction in mean extinction times compared to the case of zero adaption.

The introduction of rewiring affects both the network structure and the epidemic dynamics, and the average distance from a node to the nearest infective increases, which leads to regions of bistability where either an endemic or a disease-free steady state can exist. Expand

If the infection rate differs from city to city and the coupling between them is not too strong, these oscillations are synchronized with a well-defined phase lag between cities, and the analytic description of the effect is shown to be in good agreement with the results of stochastic simulations for realistic population sizes.
