Ten tutorial papers and research papers are presented from two June 2007 workshops, in Muizenberg and Stellenbosch, South Africa, on the mathematical modeling of infection diseases. The tutorial papers introduce the basic and general principles, concepts, and challenges, and types of disease modeling; the research papers sample advanced topics relevant to Africa. Among the topics are tools for mathematical epidemiology, introduction to discrete-time epidemic models, incorporating stochasticity in simple models of disease spread, modeling the epidemiological and economic impact of HIV/AIDS with particular reference to Zimbabwe, and greedy algorithms in economic epidemiology. There is no index.
