Random graphs, phase transition and structure of the giant component are fundamental to model and understand epidemics.
Earlier this year in this Github notebook I tried to plot the functions from the paper A new approach to the giant component problem by S. Janson and M. Luczak to see how big an epidemic could be if most people observe quarantine but a small fraction doesn’t.
This weekend I took part in a quantum computing workshop organized by Abuzer, Maksims and Krista from University of Latvia and QLatvia. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes math/probability/algorithms/philosophy and wants to have fun learning the basics of this topic from professionals. They have upcoming events in Riga next year and possibly in other countries too.
