Conference: CAIMS - PIMS Coronavirus Modelling Conference

Class: Scientific


I will look at a simple theoretical model of a standard branching process with branchers removed by a contact tracing procedure. The talk will identify the parameter range in which the contact tracing is able to make the process sub- critical.
