Abstract

The age of infectionmodel, first introduced by Kermack and McKendrick in 1927, is a general structure for compartmental epidemic models, including models with heterogeneous mixing. It is possible to estimate the basic reproduction number if the initial exponential growth rate and the infectivity as a function of time since being infected are known, and this is also possible for models with heterogeneous mixing.
