The three state contact process is the modi cation of the contact process at rate in which rst infections occur at rate instead. Chapters 2 and 3 consider the three state contact process on (graphs that have as set of sites) the integers with nearest neighbours interaction (that is, edges are placed among sites at Euclidean distance one apart). Results in Chapter 2 are meant to illustrate regularity of the growth of the process under the assumption that , that is, reverse immunization. While in Chapter 3 two results regarding the convergence rates of the process are given. Chapter 4 is concerned with the i.i.d. behaviour of the right endpoint of contact processes on the integers with symmetric, translation invariant interaction. Finally, Chapter 5 is concerned with two monotonicity properties of the three state contact process.
