Influenza models

£39.99

Product description

Influenza can cause death and disability on a large scale, and is a major health problem. Yet effecting control its malign effects tends to be thwarted by the unpredicatable behaviour of this virus. Medical models which are based on the complex interactions of the virus, its hosts (eg. humans), and environmental facts (especially population distribution and climate), can go some way to predicting the short-time onset and spread of influenza, so that bringing the virus under control becomes a realisable aim. In this publication, a group of world experts in virology, epidemiology, mathematics, biostatistics, geography and meteorolgy discuss how epidemiological models might be developed and used to predict the onset and course of influenza epidemics, and the relative merits of various intervention strategies to control its geographic spread.

The work brings together all the world literature on modelling influenza at the time of publication. The principles discussed can be applied to other infectious diseases, and thus this publication is a valuable source of information, ideas, and recommendations for all who are interested in epidemiology, modelling, biostatistics, and the study and control of infectious diseases in general.

BOOK CONDITION : VG : some bumping to head and foot of covers at spine; mild denting to corner tips of covers; otherwise only mild rubbing of covers which are in presentable condition; faces clean and white; inside pages excellent with only a hint of toning; binding strong and secure.
