Abstract

A theoretical framework for the description of susceptible-infected-removed (SIR) spreading processes with synergistic transmission of infection on a lattice is developed. The model incorporates explicitly the effects of time-dependence of the state of the hosts in the neighborhood of transmission events. Exact solution of the model shows that time-dependence of the state of nearest neighbors of recipient hosts is a key factor for synergistic spreading processes. It is demonstrated that the higher the connectivity of a lattice, the more prominent is the effect of synergy on spread.
