CMS Special Session: Mathematical Epidemiology
June 1, 2018 - June 4, 2018
The purpose of this CMS session is to showcase recent advances in mathematical modelling of disease-transmission in human and animal populations. The focal point for this session is the stability analysis of dynamical systems with structures relevant to disease-transmission, including extending previous results to models for Zika virus, cross-immunity, and tick-borne infections. In addition to the mathematical results, presentations will include a discussion of implications of the analysis for control and prevention of the spread of infectious diseases.
