Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews:"This two-volume set is based on a week-long workshop sponsored by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (the IMA) and held at the University of Minnesota in May 1999. ... There is a lot of valuable work in this two-volume set which could meet the intended aim of introducing people to research-level mathematical epidemiology."
