SIR epidemics on a scale-free spatial nested modular network
We propose a class of random scale-free spatial networks with nested community structures called SHEM and analyze Reed-Frost epidemics with community related independent transmissions. We show that in a specific example of the SHEM the epidemic threshold may be trivial or not as a function of the relation among community sizes, distribution of the number of communities, and transmission rates.
