A stochastic model for avian flu


This is about an SIR + virus model with ducks and virus, no humans. I start with a stochastic model from a recent paper where sustained oscillations are found through a nice bump in the power spectral density function. In fact considerable additional insight into the epidemic pattern (the stochastic dynamics) can be obtained through analysis of the associated stochastic process. The paper is not yet written, and I am looking for an author or co-author.
