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

By H. T. Banks, Carlos Castillo-Chavez

Globalization and the opportunity of bioterrorist acts have highlighted the urgent want for the improvement of theoretical and useful mathematical frameworks that could be priceless in our systemic efforts to count on, hinder, and reply to acts of destabilization.

Bioterrorism: Mathematical Modeling purposes in native land protection collects the distinct contributions of chosen teams of specialists from the fields of biostatistics, keep watch over idea, epidemiology, and mathematical biology who've engaged within the improvement of frameworks, versions, and mathematical tools had to handle a number of the urgent demanding situations posed through acts of terror. the 10 chapters of this quantity contact on a wide variety of matters within the subfields of biosurveillance, agroterrorism, bioterror reaction logistics, planned unlock of organic brokers, influence evaluate, and the unfold of enthusiast behaviors.
