Further examples of the analytic solutions of transmission dynamics models, both at equilibrium and during the dynamic stages prior to equilibrium, are provided by Anderson and May (1991), to which reference should be made if more detailed exposition is sought.
A number of easy-to-use computer-based tools are available to facilitate the task of solving ODE models, including Berkeley Madonna, ModelMaker, and Stella (see Recommended Resources).
