Summer documentation

Summer is a Python-based framework for the creation and execution of compartmental models (or “state-based”) epidemiological models of infectious disease transmission. It provides a range of structures for easily implementing compartmental models, including structure for some of the most common features added to basic compartmental frameworks, including:

  • A variety of inter-compartmental flows

  • Force of infection multipliers (frequency, density)

  • Post-processing of compartment sizes into derived outputs

  • Stratification of compartments

You can read more about the rationale behind Summer here. The source code for this library is available on GitHub.
