Abstract/Artist's Statement

This project looks at the spread of a virus on different types of graphs. We first look at different types of simple graphs, such as trees, cycles, and complete graphs. We develop formulas to determine the probability that a point, $w$ is infected at a given time, $t$. After that, we move on to looking at the spread of a virus on a grid. This was done by running a series of simulations at varying distances, fixing the probability of the virus spreading along an edge of the grid constant.
