Abstract:

Consider a population which is exposed to m infections, and consist initially of N susceptibles. At each point in time at most one susceptible becomes infective, and only from one cause. This m-dimensional simple epidemic is a stochastic process, X sub N, 1t,..., S sub N, mt, with components counting the number of infectives from the respective causes at time t.
