Introduction : mathematical modeling in epidemiology -- Compartmental epidemic models -- Models for endemic diseases -- Heterogeneity in epidemic models -- Models structured by age -- Models for diseases in highly mobile populations -- Modeling influenza -- Models for the dynamics of influenza -- Models for the transmission dynamics of HIV -- Dynamical models of tuberculosis and applications -- Models for sexually transmitted diseases or STDs.
Abstract: This text is appropriate for graduate-level courses in epidemiology for students in mathematics departments as well as for students in epidemiology programs who have a strong background in mathematics. It will also be of interest to researchers with backgrounds in the epidemiological, mathematical, and medical sciences and individuals involved in the development, implementation, and evaluation of public health policy.
