Stochastic Hybrid Models in Dynamic Networks

Simulates stochastic hybrid models for transmission of infectious
diseases in dynamic networks. It is a metapopulation model in which each
node in the network is a sub-population and disease spreads within nodes
and among them, combining two approaches: stochastic simulation algorithm
or its approximations (Gillespie DT (2007)

sbioPN: Simulation of deterministic and stochastic spatial biochemical reaction networks using Petri Nets

sbioPN is a package suited to perform simulation of deterministic and stochastic systems of biochemical reaction networks with spatial effects. Models are defined using a subset of Petri Nets, in a way that is close at how chemical reactions are defined. For deterministic solutions, sbioPN creates the associated system of differential equations "on the fly", and solves it with a Runge Kutta Dormand Prince 45 explicit algorithm. For stochastic solutions, sbioPN offers two variants of Gillespie algorithm, or SSA. For hybrid deterministic/stochastic, it employs the Haseltine and Rawlings algorithm, that partitions the system in fast and slow reactions. sbioPN algorithms are developed in C to achieve adequate performance.

Road Condition Analysis

Computation of the International Roughness Index (IRI) given a longitudinal road profile. The IRI can be calculated for a single road segment or for a sequence of segments with a fixed length (e. g. 100m). For the latter, an overlap of the segments can be selected. The IRI and likewise the algorithms for its determination are defined in Sayers, Michael W; Gillespie, Thomas D; Queiroz, Cesar A.V. 1986.

Data Structures, Summaries, and Visualisations for Missing Data

Missing values are ubiquitous in data and need to be explored and handled in the initial stages of analysis. 'naniar' provides data structures and functions that facilitate the plotting of missing values and examination of imputations. This allows missing data dependencies to be explored with minimal deviation from the common work patterns of 'ggplot2' and tidy data.

A Framework for Data-Driven Stochastic Disease Spread Simulations

Provides an efficient and very flexible framework to conduct data-driven epidemiological modeling in realistic large scale disease spread simulations. The framework integrates infection dynamics in subpopulations as continuous-time Markov chains using the Gillespie stochastic simulation algorithm and incorporates available data such as births, deaths and movements as scheduled events at predefined time-points. Using C code for the numerical solvers and 'OpenMP' (if available) to divide work over multiple processors ensures high performance when simulating a sample outcome. One of our design goals was to make the package extendable and enable usage of the numerical solvers from other R extension packages in order to facilitate complex epidemiological research. The package contains template models and can be extended with user-defined models.
