By H. T. Banks, Carlos Castillo-Chavez

Globalization and the opportunity of bioterrorist acts have highlighted the urgent desire for the improvement of theoretical and useful mathematical frameworks that could be precious in our systemic efforts to count on, hinder, and reply to acts of destabilization.

Bioterrorism: Mathematical Modeling purposes in place of birth defense collects the distinctive contributions of chosen teams of specialists from the fields of biostatistics, regulate thought, epidemiology, and mathematical biology who've engaged within the improvement of frameworks, types, and mathematical equipment had to handle many of the urgent demanding situations posed by means of acts of terror. the 10 chapters of this quantity contact on a wide range of matters within the subfields of biosurveillance, agroterrorism, bioterror reaction logistics, planned liberate of organic brokers, impression review, and the unfold of enthusiast behaviors.
