On stochastic compartmental modeling
This communication contains a proof of the fact that the coefficient of variation of the contents of a compartment of a stochastic compartmental model with deterministic rate parameters is small for large populations. We can therefore conclude that the use of stochastic compartmental models is not of great consequence in the case of systems involving large populations when only the randomness of the transfer mechanism is considered.
