Download Bioterrorism: Mathematical Modeling Applications in Homeland by H. T. Banks, Carlos Castillo-Chavez PDF

By H. T. Banks, Carlos Castillo-Chavez

Globalization and the potential of bioterrorist acts have highlighted the urgent want for the improvement of theoretical and functional mathematical frameworks which may be worthwhile in our systemic efforts to expect, hinder, and reply to acts of destabilization.

Bioterrorism: Mathematical Modeling purposes in native land defense collects the distinct contributions of chosen teams of specialists from the fields of biostatistics, regulate concept, epidemiology, and mathematical biology who've engaged within the improvement of frameworks, types, and mathematical tools had to tackle many of the urgent demanding situations posed via acts of terror. the 10 chapters of this quantity contact on a wide range of concerns within the subfields of biosurveillance, agroterrorism, bioterror reaction logistics, planned liberate of organic brokers, effect evaluate, and the unfold of enthusiast behaviors.
