Mathematical techniques

The group uses a range of mathematical techniques to model epidemic and other ecological processes. These include:

  • ordinary and partial differential equations including asymptotic and perturbation theory for model reduction;
  • stochastic differential equations;
  • probability theory;
  • individual-based models for spatial epidemics;
  • optimisation and control theory;
  • percolation theory and other methods from statistical physics.
