Summary:
This graduate-level textbook appeals to readers interested in the mathematical theory of disease transmission models. It is self-contained and accessible to readers who are comfortable with calculus, elementary differential equations, and linear algebra. The book provides insight into modeling cross-immunity between different disease strains (such as influenza) and the synergistic interactions between multiple  Read more...
