In this talk I’ll discuss the renewal equation and its use in epidemic modelling. I will briefly discuss how many popular approaches result in a renewal equation, and highlight a few applications where the renewal equation is used. I will then discuss new work we have recently done to rigorously derive how the renewal equation arises from age dependent branching processes. I will then discuss a few interesting (i think) implications of this derivation - including overdispersion and a link to generalised Fibonacci numbers!
