This function makes the set of places (P) for a SPN. It is used alone if our model is a single-node metapopulation for mosquito SEI and human SEIR dynamics; otherwise it is used as part of other functions to make SPN models with larger state spaces (metapopulation models, spn_P_epiSEIR_network).

spn_P_epiSEIR_node(params, cube)



a named list of parameters (see details)


an inheritance cube from the MGDrivE package (e.g. cubeMendelian)


a list with two elements: ix contains labeled indices of the places by life stage, u is the character vector of places (P)


The params argument supplies all of the ecological parameters necessary to calculate equilibrium values. This function requires the nE, nL, nP, and nEIP parameters to be specified. For more details, see equilibrium_SEI_SEIR

For examples of using this function, see: vignette("seir-dynamics", package = "MGDrivE2")
