Product Overview

Mathematical models are increasingly being used to examine questions in infectious disease control. Applications include predicting the impact of vaccination strategies against common infections and determining optimal control
strategies against HIV and pandemic influenza.

This book introduces individuals interested in infectious
diseases to this exciting and expanding area. The
mathematical level of the book is kept as simple as
possible, which makes the book accessible to those who have
not studied mathematics to university level. Understanding
is further enhanced by models that can be accessed online,
which will allow readers to explore the impact of different
factors and control strategies, and further adapt and
develop the models themselves.

The book is based on successful courses developed by the
authors at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical
Medicine. It will be of interest to epidemiologists, public
health researchers, policy makers, veterinary scientists,
medical statisticians and infectious disease researchers.
