The Maths of Life and Death, Kit Yates
From Dawn Wasley on September 8th, 2021
ICMS welcome Kit Yates (Bath) for a talk on Maths of Life and Death. This Public Lecture was part of the September 2021 Early Career Workshop - Modelling Diffusive Systems: Theory & Biological Applications workshop.
Kit Yates looks at some of the basic models and mathematics underlying the understanding of disease spread, and picks apart the meanings behind some of the terms we hear about in the news: from exponential growth and R to critical immunisation threshold and herd immunity.
Kit Yates is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mathematical Sciences and co-director of the Centre for Mathematical Biology at the University of Bath. He completed his PhD in Mathematics at the University of Oxford in 2011.
