Title: Rumor Processes On ℕ And Discrete Renewal Processes

Abstract: We study two rumor processes on ℕ, the dynamics of which are related to an SI epidemic model with long range transmission. Both models start with one spreader at site 0 and ignorants at all the other sites of ℕ, but differ by the transmission mechanism. In one model, the spreaders transmit the information within a random distance on their right, and in the other the ignorants take the information from a spreader within a random distance on their left. We obtain the probability of survival, information on the distribution of the range of the rumor and limit theorems for the proportion of spreaders. The key step of our proofs is to show that, in each model, the position of the spreaders on ℕ can be related to a suitably chosen discrete renewal process. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
