Epidemiology, equilibria, and ebola: a dynamical analysis
In order to understand the forces that drive outbreaks such as the recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the force of infection must be broken down into a system of di erential equations. With the current understanding of how the equations and diseases interact, it's possible to build diseases from equations and build equations from diseases. Breaking down the di erential equations farther leads to a deeper understanding of what "stability" looks like for a disease and ultimately enables the prediction of the behavior of diseases, including points of peak infection rates and the total number of ...
