Some simple epidemic models

1. Department of Mathematics, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z2

The SARS epidemic of 2002-3 led to the study of epidemic models including management measures and other generalizations of the original 1927 epidemic model of Kermack and McKendrick. We consider some natural extensions of the Kermack-McKendrick model and show that they share the main properties of the original model.
