Table 1 Model parameters and their maximum values

From: Estimating malaria transmission intensity from Plasmodium falciparum serological data using antibody density models

Parameter Description Maximum value Estimates median (95 % CrI)
λ v Rate of exposure for village v 100 See Table 2
a Maximum antibody boost size on exposure 10 0.242 (0.237–0.246)
b Slope of dependence of antibody boost on current log10 optical density 10 0.090 (0.035–0.121)
s Standard deviation for boost size distribution 10 0.018 (0.006–0.032)
η Mean boost for individuals with no current antibody 100 0.026 (0.025–0.029)
