The SIR model tries to model influenza epidemics. Here, we try to medel the spreading of the swine flu.

the reproduction rate [math]R_0[/math] for influenza is equal to the infection rate of the strain ([math]\beta[/math]) multiplied by the duration of the infectious period ([math]1/\gamma[/math]), i.e.

[math]\beta = R_0\cdot \gamma[/math]
