We intent to study the time evolution of biological populations, including epidemic spreading, by the point of view of the stochastic dynamics. Among the models that we will study there are generalizations of the cyclic model susceptible-infected-recovered-susceptible for four or more states. We will analize the phase transition and the critical behavior in Bravais lattices in many dimensions and complex networks. Those models are defined by the rate transition between states, so the main approach is by using numerical simulations. The most important task is to determine the critical behavior and the critical exponents. (AU)
