# Mathematics of infectious diseases, fall 2011=20 This course is an introduction to the mathematical modeling of the sprea= d of infectious diseases in populations, and to mathematical techniques for= analyzing the resulting models. The course will first discuss various type= s of basic ordinary differential equation (ODE) models, and their underlyin= g assumptions. We will then briefly touch upon some basic stochastic models= . Once the basics are in place, we will study more advanced topics such as<= /p>=20 =20 more general dependence of infectivity and virulence on the time since = infection=20 the effects of population structures, including age structure and sex s= tructure=20 the effects of contact patterns within population=20 spatial models=20 competitive exclusion of parasite strains, and the evolution of parasit= e virulence and host defense=20 =20
