Table 1 Parameters in an age compartment-structured SIR model.

From: Estimation of parameters in a structured SIR model

Parameters at i th compartment
\(p_{i}\), \(q_{i}\), \(r_{i}\) Survival rates of \(S_{i}\), \(I_{i}\), \(R_{i}\).
\(\alpha_{i} \) Exposition rate of susceptible individuals \(S_{i}\) by contact with infected individuals \(I_{i}\).
\(\gamma_{i}\) Rate of infected individuals becoming recovered individuals.
\(\sigma_{i}\), \(\mu_{i}\), \(\nu_{i}\) Rate individuals changing of age-compartment without changing the state.
\(\epsilon_{i}\), \(\delta_{i}\) Rate individuals changing of age-compartment with changing the state.
