Book DetailsDIMACS  Series in Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer ScienceVolume: 75; 2010; 268 ppMSC: Primary 34; 92
This volume stems from two DIMACS activities, the U.S.–Africa Advanced Study Institute and the DIMACS Workshop, both on Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Diseases in Africa, held in South Africa in the summer of 2007. It contains both tutorial papers and research papers.
Students and researchers should find the papers on modeling and analyzing certain diseases currently affecting Africa very informative. In particular, they can learn basic principles of disease modeling and stability from the tutorial papers where continuous and discrete time models, optimal control, and stochastic features are introduced.
Copublished with the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science beginning with Volume 8. Volumes 1–7 were copublished with the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM).
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in modeling of development and spread of infectious diseases.

Table of Contents
