SimInf: A Framework for Data-Driven Stochastic Disease Spread Simulations

Livestock movements are important for the spread of many infectious diseases between herds. The package provides an efficient and flexible framework for stochastic disease spread modelling that integrates within-herd disease dynamics as continuous-time Markov chains and livestock movements between herds as scheduled events. The core simulation solver is implemented in C and uses 'OpenMP' (if available) to divide work over multiple processors. The package contains template models and can be extended with user defined models.
