This book grew out of the discussions and presentations that began during the Workshop on Emerging and Reemerging Diseases (May 17-21, 1999) sponsored by the Institute for Mathematics and its Application (IMA) at the University of Minnesota with the support of NIH and NSF. The workshop started with a two-day tutorial session directed at ecologists, epidemiologists, immunologists, mathematicians, and scientists interested in the study of disease dynamics. The core of this second volume, Volume 126, covers research contributions on the use of dynamical systems (deterministic discrete, delay, PDEs, and ODEs models) and stochastic models in disease dynamics. Contributions motivated by the study of diseases like influenza, HIV, tuberculosis, and macroparasitic like schistosomiasis are also included. This second volume requires additional mathematical sophistication, and graduate students in applied mathematics, scientists in the natural, social, and health sciences, or mathematicians who want to enter the field of mathematical and theoretical epidemiology will find it useful. The collection of contributors includes many who have been in the forefront of the development of the subject.

From the reviews:

"This two-volume set is based on a week-long workshop sponsored by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (the IMA) and held at the University of Minnesota in May 1999. ... There is a lot of valuable work in this two-volume set which could meet the intended aim of introducing people to research-level mathematical epidemiology."
