Posted by Mia in Uncategorized.

Thanks to U of Ottawa’s R.J.Smith? [sic] et al., modeling zombie attacks is totally mainstream!  I’m undeadly serious. (and you thought Canada was boring?!) Check out this chapter from Infectious Disease Modelling Research Progress. 

See Gelman and Romero’s  How many zombies do you know? Using indirect survey methods to measure alien attacks and outbreaks of the undead”

Don’t miss Messer’s followup and simulation recently posted on the Tortoise’s Lens:

Munz, P., Hudea, I., Imad, J., and Smith?, R. J. (2009). When zombies attack!: Mathematical modelling of an outbreak of zombie infection. In Infectious Disease Modelling Research Progress, ed. J. M. Tchuenche and C. Chiyaka, 133–150. Hauppage, New York: Nova Science Publishers.
