This PowerPoint presentation shows that the spread of SARS can be understood
through network-theoretic analysis, one could say almost as much as the
spread of SARS can be understood through biology.  Fortunately the SARS
epidemic is in its early stages, and tracking its point-to-point spread is
still tractable.

My questions are these: Can we network theorists contribute any important
insights to the fight against SARS?  Have network analyses in the past
helped organizations like the CDC and the WHO?

Thanks,

Here is a CDC presentation that includes some of the network dynamics of
the spread of SARS... including a network graph [slide 9] around one
"super-spreader".
