2! 3! 01) = because the terms after the second term become negligible. a This notation expresses an equality when x approaches 0. m Is u likely “small”? Use your expression for u and your “synthetic epidemic”. Thus, Soper states that exp(δτ u) = = 1 + δτ u du 1+τ . 10) above should actually be replaced by an ≈-sign because it is an approximate relationship. 9 He writes du . 12) dt To remind us, δτ u is the change in u over the period τ . The right-hand side of the expression, τ du dt , represents the “instantaneous change” in u or the rate of change multiplied by the incubation period τ .

750, second column, second paragraph) The observations he is referring to consist, as mentioned before, of infirmary records on measles outbreaks in the period between 1875 and 1888 in a boarding school for girls, the Imperial Educational College for the Daughters of the Nobility and the Alexander Institution in St Petersburg, Russia.

B For the left-hand side of Eq. 31) I used the integral of the right-hand side of Eq. 15) which we set out to integrate. To complete this step, though, we have to compute the definite integral of the right-hand side of Eq. e. from age x = 0 to age x = x1 : x1 1 n x 0 (m − 1)e n + 1 dx. 32) +1 (using log C − log C 1 = log 1 = log m C). m m 4. 32) together, we get x1 log me n ζ (x1 ) = log . 33) Exponentiating both sides of Eq. 33), we obtain Eq. 16) and have thus answered the question. 00001-8.
