Title:  Mathematical Modeling of Cholera Epidemics

Abstract:   Cholera is a severe water-borne disease caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. In this talk, I will present some recent investigations of cholera epidemics through mathematical modeling and analysis. The talk consists of two parts. In the first part, I will give a introduction to infectious disease modeling. In the second part, we will discuss disease threshold dynamics and cholera traveling waves by using ODE and PDE models.
