A Model Based on Cellular Automata to Simulate Epidemic Diseases
The main goal of this work is to introduce a mathematical model, based on two-dimensional cellular automata, to simulate epidemic diseases. Specifically, each cell stands for a square portion of the ground where the epidemic is spreading, and its state is given by the fractions of susceptible, infected and recovered individuals.
