TALK:
Student Mathematics Seminar: Sex, Diffusion and Networks
Tue, 21 May 2013 13:00 - Mathematics Lecture Room 2
Thomas Stemler
Applied mathematicians are often accused of screwing around with the
ideas pure colleagues had. In this talk I am going to prove that
sometimes this accusation is true. Using a network of social
interactions I will show how we can model the spread of a sexual
transmitted disease in a society. While most of the work has been done
by research groups in Europe, the results are similar to some of Michael
Small who worked on SARS modelling that I will mention as well.
