About these proceedings


This IMA Volume in Mathematics and its Applications MATHEMATICAL APPROACHES FOR EMERGING AND REEMERGING INFECTIOUS DISEASES: MODELS, AND THEORY METHODS is based on the proceedings of a successful one week workshop. The pro­ ceedings of the two-day tutorial which preceded the workshop "Introduction to Epidemiology and Immunology" appears as IMA Volume 125: Math­ ematical Approaches for Emerging and Reemerging Infectious Diseases: An Introduction. The tutorial and the workshop are integral parts of the September 1998 to June 1999 IMA program on "MATHEMATICS IN BI­ OLOGY. " I would like to thank Carlos Castillo-Chavez (Director of the Math­ ematical and Theoretical Biology Institute and a member of the Depart­ ments of Biometrics, Statistics and Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Cornell University), Sally M. Blower (Biomathematics, UCLA School of Medicine), Pauline van den Driessche (Mathematics and Statistics, Uni­ versity of Victoria), and Denise Kirschner (Microbiology and Immunology, University of Michigan Medical School) for their superb roles as organizers of the meetings and editors of the proceedings. Carlos Castillo-Chavez, es­ pecially, made a major contribution by spearheading the editing process. I am also grateful to Kenneth L. Cooke (Mathematics, Pomona College), for being one of the workshop organizers and to Abdul-Aziz Yakubu (Mathe­ matics, Howard University) for serving as co-editor of the proceedings. I thank Simon A. Levin (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton Uni­ versity) for providing an introduction.

From the reviews:

"This two-volume set is based on a week-long workshop sponsored by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (the IMA) and held at the University of Minnesota in May 1999. … There is a lot of valuable work in this two-volume set which could meet the intended aim of introducing people to research-level mathematical epidemiology." (Geoff Aldis, UK Nonlinear News, November 2002)
