Contact networks and the spread of epidemic disease

Presented by: 
Mark Newman University of Michigan
Date: 
Wednesday 13th July 2016 - 14:15 to 14:45
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
The structure of the networks of contact between individuals can have a profound effect on the rate and extent of disease epidemics. This talk will outline some of the fundamental mathematics connecting network structure with disease outcomes and describe a number of case studies of applications to infectious diseases, including influenza, HIV, Mycoplasma pneumonia, and SARS.
