About this book

Provides systematic coverage of the mathematical theory of modelling epidemics in populations, with a clear and coherent discussion of the issues, concepts and phenomena. Mathematical modelling of epidemics is a vast and important area of study and this book helps the reader to translate, model, analyse and interpret, with numerous applications, examples and exercises to aid understanding.

this is a very well-written book...(Int. Jnl of Epidemiology, Vol. 30/1, 2001) "The extensive exercises make the book suitable not only for courses in modeling, but also for self-study by epidemiologists, mathematicians, and statisticians." (SIAM Review, Vol. 43, No. 4) "An attractive feature is that over one-third of the book is devoted to worked-out answers to the exercises" (Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics Review. Vol. 43 No.4. 2001)
