Moment closure approximations are used to provide analytic approximations to non-linear stochastic population models. They often provide insights into model behaviour and help validate simulation results.

However, existing closure schemes typically fail in situations where thepopulation distribution is highly skewed or extinctions ~gavin/papers/pdfs_etc/ Moment closure approximations are used to provide analytic approximations to non-linear stochastic population models.

They often provide insights into model behaviour and help validate simulation results. However, existing closure schemes typically fail in situations where the population distribution is highly skewed or extinctions :// Moment closure approximation (MCA) is a method of obtaining dynamic deterministic approximations to models where spatiality is important.

Such approximations track the time evolution of low-order correlations, for instance the correlation of disease status of nearest-neighbours in a square lattice.

Thus they are able to capture aspects of population dynamics which traditional mean-field Moment closure approximations in epidemiology.

Recent work has tackled this problem in the univariate case. In this study, we address this problem by introducing novel bivariate moment-closure methods based on mixture distributions.

This is an uncontrolled approximation, and one drawback is that the choice of closure function must be guided by experience, or by a posteriori comparison with Matt Keeling Epidemiology: Foot-and-mouth disease, Avian influenza, Measles, : Disease evolution, Ecology: Bacteria-phage interactions, spatial habit-use.
