    • Abstract


      While nonlinear dynamics is no stranger to modeling epidemics, the present COVID-19 crisis has underlined the inadequacy of simple models of spreading contagia in describing the epidemic as it evolves in real life. It suggests that we need to augment our models which had so far focused on the complexity of interactions by incorporating the complexity in the components themselves, e.g., by considering strategic decision making in agents choosing between different actions.
