Mathematical and Computer Modelling of Epidemics with Public Health Applications

This project aimed to understand the behaviour of infectious disease process in a population in order to prevent its establishment, control its spread, and reduce its ability to persist. Hospital infection, pandemics and bio-terrorist attacks are becoming a global concern. Mathematical modeling is indispensable as infectious disease data are not the result of controlled experiments but are part of observational data arising from complex naturally occurring phenomena. This project completed in June 2002.
