In this module we introduce and compare various types of deterministic and stochastic mathematical models of disease transmission. We then illustrate how one can derive predictions of these models in the form of mathematical theorems.

Level: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students of mathematics. 

Requires: For the most part accessible to any students with solid mathematical preparation who have done some work with IONTW.  Prior knowledge of Module Exploring Erdős-Rényi random graphs with IONTW and Module Differential equation models of disease transmission is recommended.
