We introduce a spatial stochastic model for virus dynamics. We show that if the death rate of infected cells increases too fast with the virus load the virus dies out. This is in sharp contrast with what happens in the (non-spatial deterministic) basic model for virus dynamics.

    In this paper, we consider mixed linear models, possibly with singular covariance matrices, by supplementing a particular fixed effects model with appropriate stochastic restrictions. We show that all representations of the best linear unbiased estimator (BLUE) and best linear unbiased predictor...

Moreover, a setup time...
