This book is primarily a self-study text for those who want to learn about mathematical modelling concepts in the area of infectious diseases. It is therefore of most interest to applied mathematicians, epidemiologists and theoretical biologists, although others may find some of the content of interest. The book takes a very hands-on approach to learning.

Mathematical Models in Infectious Disease Epidemiology
In this paper I present the genesis of R 0 in demography, ecology and epidemiology, from embryo to its current adult form. I argue on why it has taken so long for the concept to mature in epidemiology when there were ample opportunities for cross-fertilisation from demography and ecology from where it reached adulthood fifty years earlier. Today, R 0 is a more fully developed adult in epidemiology than in demography. In the final section I give an algorithm for its calculation in heterogeneous populations.

Mathematical models can project how infectious diseases progress to show the likely outcome of an epidemic and help inform public health interventions. Models use basic assumptions or collected statistics along with mathematics to find parameters for various infectious diseases and use those parameters to calculate the effects of different interventions, like mass vaccination programmes. The modelling can help decide which intervention s to avoid and which to trial, or can predict future growth patterns, etc. The modeling of infectious diseases is a tool that has been used to study the mechanisms by which diseases spread, to predict the future course of an outbreak and to evaluate strategies to control an epidemic. The first scientist who systematically tried to quantify causes of death was John Graunt in his book Natural and Political Observations made upon the Bills of Mortality , in

Mathematical models of infectious disease transmission
This book is primarily a self-study text for those who want to learn about mathematical modelling concepts in the area of infectious diseases. It is therefore of most interest to applied mathematicians, epidemiologists and theoretical biologists, although others may find some of the content of interest. The book takes a very hands-on approach to learning. Each of its ten chapters are littered with examples and exercises, all of which are aimed at reinforcing the concepts introduced. The book is split into two halves—the first half is the main portion of the text that contains all of the theory and exercises, whilst the second half is the elaborations outline solutions to the exercises. Personally, I feel that this structure makes for the ideal use of the book as a self-study text since one can work through it chapter by chapter, using the elaborations as and when necessary to help overcome any difficulties that may be encountered.

Various types of deterministic dynamical models are considered: ordinary differential equation models, delay-differential equation models, difference equation models, age-structured PDE models and diffusion models. It includes various techniques for the computation of the basic reproduction number as well as approaches to the epidemiological interpretation of the reproduction number. MATLAB code is included to facilitate the data fitting and the simulation with age-structured models. Satzer, MAA reviews, maa.
Никто никогда не называл Джаббу дураком, свиньей - быть может, но дураком -. - Свою женскую интуицию ты ставишь выше ученых степеней и опыта Джаббы в области антивирусного программирования. Она взглянула на него с холодным презрением. Бринкерхофф поднял руки в знак капитуляции. - Извини. Беру свои слова обратно.
- Ключ - это первичное, то есть простое число. Подумайте. Это не лишено смысла. Джабба сразу понял, что Сьюзан права. Энсей Танкадо сделал карьеру на простых числах.
Между шифровалкой и стоянкой для машин не менее дюжины вооруженных охранников. - Я не такой дурак, как вы думаете, - бросил Хейл. - Я воспользуюсь вашим лифтом.
Он поднял глаза на видеомониторы, и у него закружилась голова. Одна и та же картинка смотрела на него со всех двенадцати мониторов наподобие какого-то извращенного балета. Вцепившись руками в спинку стула, Бринкерхофф в ужасе смотрел на экраны.
Ты права, - проворчал Стратмор.
- Быть может, он не знал, что бомбы были одинаковые. - Нет! - отрезала Сьюзан. - Он стал калекой из-за этих бомб.
