The basic framework of mathematical epidemiology is the SIR model. The letters in the acronym represent the three primary states that any member of a population can occupy with respect to a disease: susceptible, infectious, and removed. This worksheet demonstrates the use of the Lambert W function (LambertW), which was included in Maple in its early years, for the phase transition in the SIR model.
