L | Payoff to a person who has acquired immunity, either through vaccine or through infection and who did not experience long-term complications from vaccine or infection |
n _{ inf } | Number of infectious neighbors for an individual on a given day |
m _{ inf } | Number of infectious neighbors' neighbors for an individual on a given day |
λ | Probability per day of an individual becoming infected by infectious neighbors |
λ _{ perc } | Perceived probability per day of an individual becoming infected by infectious neighbors |
ϑ _{ perc } | Perceived probability per day of an individual becoming infected by infectious neighbors' neighbors |
ρ | Probability with which an individual will vaccinate today if her/his P _{ V }> P _{ N }today |
1/ι | Duration of the latent period for an infectious individual in the extended model |
