SPECIAL TOPIC COURSE FALL 2021
MATH 3991 - Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Diseases
A lot of public health media releases speak of ‘what the models are showing’. What are these models? How are they made? Can we trust them? In this course we will explore answers to these questions through study of different types of mathematical models of disease progression. We will explore and discuss questions that mathematical models are good at answering, and what kind of questions are they not suited to.
Prerequisites: MATH 1121 and MATH 2221.
[Note: MATH 2121 and credit in a Statistics course are also highly recommended.]
