The effect of avoiding known infected neighbors on the persistence of a recurring infection process
Electronic Journal of Probability
We study a generalization of the classical contact process (SIS epidemic model) on a directed graph G. Our model is a continuous-time interacting particle system in which at every time, each vertex is either healthy or infected, and each oriented edge is either active or inactive. Infected vertices become healthy at rate 1 and pass the infection along each active outgoing edge at rate λ. At rate α, healthy individuals deactivate each incoming edge from their infected neighbors, and an inactivedoi:10.1214/22-ejp836 fatcat:hgmo3rpd2vch7a5gh7qzgmgy7i
