Abstract

The general stochastic epidemic model is used as a model for the spread of rumours. Recursive expressions are found for the mean of the final size of each generation of hearers. Simple expressions are found for the generation size and the asymptotic form of its final size in the deterministic model. An approximating process is presented.
