The state of each cell evolves through discrete time steps, with transition rules applied to all cells repeatedly at different time steps. The key element in CA disease modeling is the design of the impacting neighborhood and driving factors for disease spreading. The simplest CA model uses the direct eight adjacent neighbors of a center cell in the simulation. However, this simple neighborhood definition cannot meet the needs of many disease-spreading applications. Multiple regular or irregular neighborhood rings can be used to differentiate the influence of cells at different distances on the spread of disease.

Many of the early disease models were devoted to mathematical modeling on a population level, assuming various kinds of homogeneity. The classic method of mathematical modeling considered a host population to be divided into distinct units, and each individual interacted with other individuals in his or her immediate neighbourhood. The simplest of these population-based models is the SIR model, initially described by Kermack and McKendrick (1927) for a closed population. However, possible spatial–temporal spread and effect of a disease outbreak in different communities usually play more important roles in determining public health interventions (Auchincloss et al.
