Abstract - . Many models for the spread of infectious diseases in populations have been analyzed mathematically. Threshold theorems involving the basic reproduction number R0 and the contact number σ are reviewed for the classic SIR epidemic and endemic models. Similar results with new expressions for R0 are explored for the MSEIR models with continuous age distribution.
