26), we needed to solve for A and B. 27) by the common denominator, u (ku + 1), to get u (ku + 1) = u (ku + 1) 1 = A u (ku + 1) B u (ku + 1) + , u ku + 1 A (ku + 1) + B u (denominators cancel). 28) D. Bernoulli: A pioneer of epidemiologic modeling (1760) 19 Eq. 28) must hold for any value of u. This gives 1 = A (k0 + 1) + B0 = A (solution for A = 1). 29) Now do the same process for B, setting ku = −1 so that A vanishes; u must then be u = − 1k : 1 = A k − 1 1 +1 +B − k k B (the term with A vanishes), k = −k (solution for B after rearranging).

The probability of becoming infected equals the probability of coming in contact with a case during one period. 4. The population is of size N with J being susceptible and x are infected; these are all variables. This is also true for N : as the ill get transferred to the infirmary, the population N decreases. 5. If x people become infected/infectious during period t they will be capable of infecting others during period t + 1 after which they will be removed from the population: This paper deals with outbreaks in boarding schools; sick are transferred to the infirmary.

The six two-year periods added, per week is 1,250 the equilibrium number for Glasgow is M = a × s = 1,250 × 70 = 87,500. This number is then used by Soper to reconstruct the monthly numbers of susceptibles, as the susceptibles in one month are the numbers at the beginning of the previous month with the cases in the previous month subtracted. 5), the per-generation increase in the number of cases would be by the factor xt+1 i , xt where the index t represents months. The reason for that can be seen in the following example.
