Description

Mathematic Modelling: Improving the Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation of Interventions, Part B, the latest volume in the Advances in Parasitology series contains comprehensive and up-to-date reviews in the field of mathematic modeling and its implementation within parasitology.

The series includes medical studies of parasites of major influence, such as Plasmodium falciparum and trypanosomes, along with reviews of more traditional areas, such as zoology, taxonomy, and life history, all of which shape current thinking and applications.

Key Features

  • Informs and updates on all the latest developments in mathematic modeling
  • Contains contributions from leading authorities and industry experts
  • Latest installment in the Advances in Parasitology series

Readership

PhD students, professors, scientists, health workers, government officers, and policy makers at various levels
