About this Textbook

The book is a comprehensive, self-contained introduction to the mathematical modeling and analysis of infectious diseases. It includes model building, fitting to data, local and global analysis techniques. Various types of deterministic dynamical models are considered: ordinary differential equation models, delay-differential equation models, difference equation models, age-structured PDE models and diffusion models. It includes various techniques for the computation of the basic reproduction number as well as approaches to the epidemiological interpretation of the reproduction number. MATLAB code is included to facilitate the data fitting and the simulation with age-structured models.

Maia Martcheva is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Florida, USA.  Her areas of interest and research include: epidemic models of multi-strain interactions, spatial epidemic modeling, immunological modeling, and immune-epidemiological modeling.

Reviews

“The current book is an introductory text that starts at the level of the neophyte and gradually brings the student to the level of current research. … The target readers include advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics as well as graduate students in other fields. … This is an appealing book, well-written and thoughtfully organized.” (William J. Satzer, MAA reviews, maa.org, January, 2016)

“This book does not limit itself by any means to be just an introductory level textbook, aiming actually to be a comprehensive, self-contained reference text for mathematical epidemiologists. … The presentation is example-based, well thought out and very carefully organized. … The book has the clarity of a textbook while having the depth of a monograph, the author always being successful in conveying the content of a topic regardless of its difficulty.” (Paul Georgescu, zbMATH 1333.92006, 2016)
