# Software files for PhD thesis of Peter Ballard

Source files describing the algorithms used in 3 papers authored by Peter Ballard as part of his PhD. Two of these are published: "The probability of epidemic fade-out is non-monotonic in transmission rate for the Markovian SIR model with demography" (doi:10.1016/j.jtbi.2016.01.012) and "Intervention to maximise the probability of epidemic fade-out" (doi:10.1016/j.mbs.2017.08.003). These are associated with calculating the probability of epidemic fade-out, or maximising the probability of epidemic fade-out. The code is Cython, Python and Julia.
