Speaker: Prof. Giacomo Como, Politecnico di Torino, Italy
Abstract: In the last months the interest in dynamic models of network epidemics and their control has surged and many new works have appeared motivated by applications to the current situation. In this talk I will review some of the most used models and recent results with particular focus on the network SIR model.
