Preface
Index
This graduatelevel textbook appeals to readers interested in the mathematical theory of disease transmission models. It is selfcontained and accessible to readers who are comfortable with calculus, elementary differential equations, and linear algebra. The book provides insight into modeling
Audience
This text is appropriate for graduatelevel courses in epidemiology for students in mathematics departments as well as for students in epidemiology programs who have a strong background in mathematics. It will also be of interest to researchers with backgrounds in the epidemiological, mathematical, and medical sciences and individuals involved in the development, implementation, and evaluation of public health policy.
