ASQ RRD Series Webinar: Stochastic Modelling

Abstract

Modeling a process or a system as a Markov Chain offers an excellent tool for its performance evaluation and for the study of different factors that can run it astray. In this talk we will present four examples of modeling Covid-19 problems as Markov Chains: (1) the trajectory of Covid-19 infected patients into an ICU, and up to their death; (2) assuming that the virus will infect a large part of the population, thus preventing further community spread and yielding Herd Immunization; (3) study of the Re-opening of Colleges under Covid-19 using a Markov Chain defined over a nine element state space that moves through a set of Transient states, eventually leading to two Absorbing States: Expulsion or Coursework; (4) assessing different patterns of vaccination, which may affect achieving (or not) Herd Immunity: polls suggesting that a significant number of people are not inclined to become vaccinated.

The entire research is discussed in the paper “Commented Summary of a Year of Work in Covid-19 Statistical Modeling”, available from ResearchGate at: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/349008991_Commented_Summary_of_a_Year_of_Work_in_Covid-19_Statistical_Modeling
