COVID-19 Simulation Studies

The spread of the coronavirus poses many challenges around the word. Predictions regarding the future evolution of the epidemic are highly uncertain. Kerstin Awiszus and Stefan Weber analyze a simple SIR infection model. Different case studies suggest that a significant proportion of the population might be infected by the virus within the next months.


A description of the analysis and MATLAB codes are available on our website:




The SIR model consists of two coupled ODEs and can easily be implemented by undergraduate or interested high school students.
