Seminar: "Mathematical models for epidemics with illustrations for Covid-19"
AUEB STATISTICS SEMINAR SERIES APRIL 2022
Tom Britton (Department of Mathematics, Stockholm University)
Mathematical models for epidemics with illustrations for Covid-19
Room 601, Postgraduate Building, Evelpidon & Lefkados
In the talk I will first give a short introduction to mathematical models for disease spreading. After this I will briefly describe three problems I have been working on. 1. Optimal prevention: investigating when and how strong restrictions should be imposed for optimal effect. 2. Herd immunity: investigating what is the necessary immunity coverage of immunity comes from vaccination vs disease exposure. 3. Generation times: inference problems and effects when estimates are biased.
