Summary
  • "Provides systematic coverage of the mathematical theory of modelling epidemics in populations, with a clear and coherent discussion of the issues, concepts and phenomena. Mathematical modelling of epidemics is a vast and important area of study and this book helps the reader to translate, model, analyse and interpret, with numerous applications, examples and exercises to aid understanding."--Publisher description
  • "The reader will learn to translate, model, analyse and interpret, with the help of the numerous exercises. In literally working through this text, the reader acquires modelling skills that are also valuable outside of epidemiology, certainly within population dynamics, but even beyond that. In addition, the reader receives training in mathematical argumentation." "The text is aimed at applied mathematicians with an interest in population biology and epidemiology, at theoretical biologists and epidemiologists. Previous exposure to epidemic concepts is not required, as all background information is given. The book is primarily aimed at self-study and ideally suited for small discussion groups, or for use as a course text."--BOOK JACKET
