Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Disease Dynamics

Calls for Papers Collections

Mathematical modeling of biological processes has contributed to improving our understanding of real-world phenomena and predicting dynamics about how life operates. Mathematical approaches have significantly shaped research on disease and evolving epidemics across the globe by providing real-time decision support. Modeling can help describe and predict how diseases develop and spread, both on local and global scales. In addition, mathematical modeling has played a critical role in understanding and measuring the impact of intervention strategies such as vaccination, isolation, and treatment.
