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 functional mathematical frameworks which may be valuable in our systemic efforts to count on, hinder, and reply to acts of destabilization.

Bioterrorism: Mathematical Modeling purposes in place of birth safeguard collects the targeted contributions of chosen teams of specialists from the fields of biostatistics, regulate concept, epidemiology, and mathematical biology who've engaged within the improvement of frameworks, versions, and mathematical equipment had to deal with a number of the urgent demanding situations posed by way of acts of terror. the 10 chapters of this quantity contact on a wide variety of matters within the subfields of biosurveillance, agroterrorism, bioterror reaction logistics, planned unencumber of organic brokers, impression review, and the unfold of enthusiast behaviors.
