Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2255)


In this chapter we give a short and informal introduction to the households model, a key example (both historically and in applications) of the kind of two-level mixing models that are the focus of this Part. It is based mainly on Ball et al. [14] and Ball and Lyne [13].
