Example text

In other words, the period is 2π . If the argument of cosine is v = bt, the period is simply inflated (or deflated if b > 1) by the factor b1 . 21) and setting b = √1sτ and b1 = sτ , it √ therefore becomes clear that the period of this system must be 2π sτ . The “obscure” relationship thus appears justified. h; the other one represented in Eq. 22). Are the two expressions actually equal? Verify, using u(t), for t ∈ {1, . . , 100} (∈ reads “in”). e. let sτ = sτ = 1 (square root of one is one), Eq.

What modern interpretation of “comparative insusceptibility of young infants” could immunological considerations offer? Referring to the only figure of the article, Hamer then infers important epidemiologic features of measles in London, based on the stated assumptions and estimates epidemiologic quantities. The x-axis of the graph (M to N ) is the time axis, and y-axis represents a rate. For the epidemic curve this would be the measles incidence rate, for the horizontal line (D to E) the rate at which susceptibles are added, which is constant.

P. 754, first column, first paragraph) This explanation alludes to heterogeneity in susceptibility and asserts that those less susceptible would become sick at the end of the epidemic. g Develop a formal argument of why those less susceptible would become infected later on average. 3 An important detail: The period En’ko then introduces the 12-day period of measles. These periods become particularly clear when the data of the cumulative figure (panel j) is divided into 12-day periods and the resulting data added, such that days 1, 13, 25, etc.
