Mathematical Understanding of Infectious Disease Dynamics



Mathematical Understanding of Infectious Disease Dynamics
The Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the National University of Singapore hosted a research program on Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Diseases: Dynamics and Control from 15 August to 9 October 2005. As part of the program, tutorials for graduate students and junior researchers were given by leading experts in the field.
This invaluable volume is a collection of three expanded lecture notes of those tutorials which cover a wide range of topics including basic mathematical details for various epidemic models, statistical distribution theory, and applications with real-life examples with implications for health policy makers.
Contents: The Basic Epidemiology Models: Models, Expressions for R0, Parameter Estimation, and Applications (H W Hethcote); Epidemiology Models with Variable Population Size (H W Hethcote); Age-Structured Epidemiology Models and Expressions for R0 (H W Hethcote); Clinical and Public Health Applications of Mathematical Models (J W Glasser); Non-Identifiables and Invariant Quantities in Infectious Disease Models (P Yan).
