Summary This book provides a systematic introduction to the fundamental methods and techniques and the frontiers of - along with many new ideas and results on - infectious disease modeling, parameter estimation and transmission dynamics. It provides complementary approaches, from deterministic to statistical to network modeling; and it seeks viewpoints of the same issues from different angles, from mathematical modeling to statistical analysis to computer simulations and finally to concrete applications
