Abstract
The susceptible, infected, removed model for epidemics as-
sumes that the population in which the epidemic takes place is
well mixed. This strong assumption can be relaxed by permitting
the epidemic to spread only along the links of a contact network
or graph. This study uses evolutionary computation to search
for graphs that exhibit one of two extreme behaviors: maximum
epidemic duration or maximal number of individuals catching
the disease. The focus of the paper is on comparison of two
