About Course
Mathematical models can be used to represent infection spread in different populations, but how do we write the equations that make up these models? What parameters are included in the equations? What assumptions are made about how infections occur?
This course is for those wishing to learn the basics of ordinary differential equation epidemic models and how to implement these models in R. Starting from the simple SusceptibleInfectious model, at the end of this course you will understand how to add additional complexities such as demography and make model predictions using R. Learn with worked examples, exercises, quizzes and tutor support – use the Q&A box to ask questions.
This course is CPD certified!
