    Talk Title: Modeling Epidemics as a Chemical Reaction Process

    Abstract: Join us for an exclusive Viterbi Live event featuring Dean Yannis Yortsos and Vice Dean Assad Oberai as they kick off the fall Viterbi Live season. Dean Yortsos and Vice Dean Oberai will present a model for the spreading of epidemics based on an analogy with chemical reaction and diffusion processes. The model accounts for spatial effects, including the emergence of contagion waves, currently missing from the standard (SIR) models. We discuss how epidemics initiate and how they spread and what parameters can be controlled to arrest their growth.
