Book Title: The Mathematical Theory of Epidemics

Author: Norman T.J. Bailey

Book Description:

I chose this book as an example of Norman Bailey's groundbreaking work on biological and medical statistics, generally, and disease dynamics in particular. In this work, he developed and analyzed key stochastic models — such as the chain-binomial and household distribution models — that are central to my own research on infectious disease ecology.
