Sexual networks: implications for the transmission of sexually transmitted infections

Liljeros, F.; Edling, Christofer LU and Amaral, L. A. N. (2003) In Microbes and Infection 5. p.189-196
Abstract
The structures of sexual networks are essential for understanding the dynamics of sexually transmitted infections. Standard epidemiological models largely disregard the complex patterns of intimate contacts. Social network analysis offers important insight into how to conceptualize and model social interaction and has the potential to greatly enhance the understanding of disease epidemics.
