Figure 1

Epidemiological quantities as defined in the main text for the exponential () infectious period distribution.

(A) Critical transmission , with rate of waning immunity . (B) Early growth rate , with rate of waning immunity and between-household transmission parameter . (C) Offspring distribution, with within-household transmission rate parameter , house size and between-household transmission parameter . (D) Endemic infection , with rate of waning immunity and between-household transmission parameter . (E) Transient dynamics, with within-household transmission rate parameter , house size , rate of waning immunity and between-household transmission parameter . (F) As in E at peak prevalence. (G) As in E at endemic prevalence.
