Mathematics of infectious diseases, fall 2009
The course gives an introduction to the basic techniques for modeling the dynamics of infectious diseases. Special attention is given to population structure and heterogeneity. One part of the course will be devoted to the study of the evolutionary dynamics of infectious diseases.
