Mathematical models can project how infectious diseases progress to show the likely outcome of an epidemic and help inform public health interventions. Models use basic assumptions or collected statistics along with mathematics to find parameters for various infectious diseases and use those parameters to calculate the effects of different interventions, like mass vaccination programmes. The first contributions to modern mathematical epidemiology are due to P.D. En'ko between and (En'ko, ), and the foundations of the entire approach to epidemiology based on compartmental models were laid by public health physicians such as Sir R.A. Ross, W.H. Hamer, A.G. McKendrick, and W.O. Kermack between and , along.

Yangxi Zhang 1 combined a reversible catalytic model with a two-stage catalytic model, and proposed that a compound catalytic model with both reversible and two-stage types should be used to analyse the distribution characteristics of the age-specific infection rate of certain parasites. According to some characteristics of the data surveyed. This book differs in many ways from alternatives, for example: The concepts of epidemiology are discussed in detail, and in an integrated way. The concepts are dominant whereas in other books the methods dominate. The epidemiological idea of population is explicitly the foundation of the whole book.

There are three basic types of deterministic models for infectious diseases which are spread by direct person-to-person contact in a population. Here these simplest models are formulated as initial value problems for systems of ordinary differential equations and are analysed mathematically. "CATALYTIC MODELS IN EPIDEMIOLOGY."

This book presents a new and systematic method which will be valuable in research on population diseases. The author has designed mathematical models (mainly of the catalytic type) which describe the results of population exposure to infection and which allow the measurement of infective forces from data obtainable from surveys.

The book is a comprehensive, self-contained introduction to the mathematical modeling and analysis of disease transmission models. It includes (i) an introduction to the main concepts of compartmental models including models with heterogeneous mixing of individuals and models for vector-transmitted diseases, (ii) a detailed analysis of models for important specific diseases, including Author: Fred Brauer, Carlos Castillo-Chavez, Zhilan Feng.

Rather than fitting to seroprevalence data, the models are fitted to age-specific cumulative incidence data (note: case-counts, not incidence rates).

As noted in the book, age-intensity data is less ideal for use with catalytic models but more commonly available. Figure-Cumulated number of papers citing Muench's book () on the application of catalytic models in epidemiology.

It includes (i) an introduction to the main concepts of compartmental models including models with heterogeneous. Based on this analogy, Muench 3 published a book in where he proposed the use of catalytic models to estimate the rate of conversion (that is, the infection or incidence rate) from susceptible to infective, based on the fitting of these models to prevalence data.

In epidemiology, disease occurrence is frequently small relative to the population size. Therefore, the proportion ﬁgures are multiplied by an appropriate number such as 10, In the above second example, we have a prevalence of 4 persons.
