We consider a model of a disordered ferromagnet. At each site i of the square lattice hZ there is a bounded real-valued spin (T{. These spins interact as follows. A typical example of stochastic differential equations is of the form dX, = a(X,) dB, + a(X,) dt, where {X,} is an R'-valued sample continuous process and {B,} is an Rd-valued Wiener process. Our purpose is to discuss an infinite dimensional extension of this equation where the state spaces of X, and B, are Schwartz spaces of

In this note we will discuss basic concepts such as random variables, stochastic processes, Wiener processes, stochastic integrals and stochastic differential equations Four/eenth Conference on Stochastic Processes in infinite dimensions and deal with concrete stochastic differential equations from our view-point. A simple coupling argument is used to construct a sequence of general stochastic epidemics, indexed by the initial number of susceptibles, from a time-homogeneous birth-and-death process. This construction provides us with a simple proof of the threshold behaviour of the general stochastic epidemic. The method is quite general and extensions to other epidemic models, such as chain-binomial and host-vector models, are briefly described.
