In the problem below I take advantage of Maple's Graph Theory package to simulate how an infection might spread throughout a small community of 15 individuals.

This is a computer simulation project rather than a biology project!  For example, the infection may not be a biological infection at all.  The 15 vertices could represent 15 different computers, and the "infection" that spreads could be interpreted as a computer virus rather than a biological virus.
