Question: What happens in the end? Beutel et. al. 2012 11 ASSUME: Virus 1 is stronger than Virus 2 ε = 0 Winner takes all ε = 1 Co-exist independently ε = 2 Viruses cooperate What about for 0 < ε <1 ? Is there a point at which both viruses can co-exist? What about for 0 < ε <1 ? Is there a point at which both viruses can co-exist? Clique: [Castillo-Chavez+ 1996] Arbitrary Graph: [Prakash+ 2011]

Answer: Yes! There is a phase transition Beutel et. al. 2012 12 ASSUME: Virus 1 is stronger than Virus 2

Answer: Yes! There is a phase transition Beutel et. al. 2012 13 ASSUME: Virus 1 is stronger than Virus 2

Answer: Yes! There is a phase transition Beutel et. al. 2012 14 ASSUME: Virus 1 is stronger than Virus 2

Our Result: Viruses can Co-exist Beutel et. al. 2012 15 Given our SI 1|2 S model and a fully connected graph, there exists an ε critical such that for ε ≥ ε critical, there is a fixed point where both viruses survive. 1.Virus 1 is stronger than Virus 2, if: strength(Virus 1) > strength(Virus 2) 2.Strength(Virus) σ = N β / δ In single virus models, threshold is σ ≥ 1

Proof Sketch [Details] View as dynamical system Define in terms of κ 1, κ 2, i 12 ▫κ 1 is fraction of population infected with virus 1 (κ 2 for virus 2) ▫i 12 is fraction of population infected with both Beutel et. al. 2012 16 κ1κ1 κ2κ2

Proof Sketch [Details] View as dynamical system Beutel et. al. 2012 17 Fixed point when New Infections Cured Infections κ1κ1 κ2κ2

Proof Sketch [Details] 3 previously known fixed points: Beutel et. al. 2012 18 Both viruses die Virus 2 dies, virus 1 lives on alone Virus 1 dies, virus 2 lives on alone I1I1 I2I2 I 1,2

Proof Sketch [Details] For co-existing fixed point, κ 1, κ 2, i 12 must be: 1.Real 2.Positive 3.Less than 1 Beutel et. al. 2012 19

Result Enforcing system constraints, we get: Beutel et. al. 2012 20 Again, there exists a valid fixed point for all ε ≥ ε critical

Outline Introduction Propagation Model Problem and Result Proof Sketch Simulations and Real Examples Implications and Subtleties Conclusions Beutel et. al. 2012 21

Simulation: σ 1 = 6, σ 2 = 4 Beutel et. al. 2012 22

Beutel et. al. 2012 23 Simulation: σ 1 = 6, σ 2 = 4, ε = 0.4

Beutel et. al. 2012 24 Simulation: σ 1 = 6, σ 2 = 4, ε = 0.4

Real Examples Beutel et. al. 2012 25 Hulu v Blockbuster [Google Search Trends data]

Real Examples Beutel et. al. 2012 26 Chrome v Firefox [Google Search Trends data]

Real Examples with Prediction Beutel et. al. 2012 27 Chrome v Firefox [Google Search Trends data]

Outline Introduction Propagation Model Problem and Result Proof Sketch Simulations and Real Examples Implications and Subtleties ▫Arbitrary Graphs ▫Cooperation Conclusions Beutel et. al. 2012 28

Arbitrary graphs? Beutel et. al. 2012 29 Equivalent to single-virus SIS model with strength εβ 2 /δ 2 Therefore, What if virus 1 is infinitely strong ( δ 1 =0 )?

Cooperation: ε > 1 Two Cases: ▫Piggyback σ 1 ≥ 1 > σ 2 : Strong virus helps weak virus survive ▫Teamwork 1 > σ 1 ≥ σ 2 : Two weak viruses help each other survive Beutel et. al. 2012 30

Cooperation: Piggyback Setting Beutel et. al. 2012 31 σ 1 = 3, σ 2 = 0.5 ε = 1 : Independent

Cooperation: Piggyback Setting Beutel et. al. 2012 32 σ 1 = 3, σ 2 = 0.5 ε = 3.5

Cooperation: Teamwork Setting Beutel et. al. 2012 33 σ 1 = 0.8, σ 2 = 0.6 ε = 1 : Independent

Cooperation: Teamwork Setting Beutel et. al. 2012 34 σ 1 = 0.8, σ 2 = 0.6 ε = 8

Proof Sketch View as dynamical system (Chrome vs Firefox) Beutel et. al. 2012 38 rate of change in κ 1 = rate of new additions – rate of people leaving rate of new additions = current Chrome users x available susceptibles x transmissibility + current Chrome users x current Firefox users x ε x transmissibility rate people leaving = current Chrome users x curing rate

Proof Sketch View as dynamical system 3 previously known fixed points: Beutel et. al. 2012 39 Both viruses die Virus 2 dies, virus 1 lives on alone Virus 1 dies, virus 2 lives on alone

Proof Sketch Just enforcing the constraint that the terms be positive, we get: Beutel et. al. 2012 40
