National Seminar on Mathematical Epidemiology

February 16 & 17, 2023

Organized by

Department of Mathematics, St.John’s College, Anchal, Kerala

Co-sponsored by

Kerala State Council for Science, Technology, and Environment -KSCSTE

Mathematical epidemiology studies the patterns of health and diseases in human populations via mathematical modelling. This seminar concentrates on the mathematics of infectious diseases and their analysis using differential equations. This seminar develops the relevant modelling skills and mathematical tools for understanding the models for infectious diseases.

In this seminar, we try to understand the progression and control of various diseases via mathematical modelling. This seminar presents various models and their analysis using a dynamical systems approach.

  • Mathematical Modelling
  • Basic infectious disease models
  • Stability analysis of systems
  • Basic reproduction number
  • Control strategies
  • Model fitting to real data
  • Bifurcation in one and two dimension
  • Limit cycles
  • Bendixson-Dulac negative criterion
  • Hopf bifurcation
  • Poincare-Bendixson theorem
  • Exploration with software
  • Examples in real life
