1.631 Fluid Dynamics and Disease
Reviews theoretical notions in mathematical epidemiology and open problems in understanding and modeling disease onset and spread. Bridges the disease modeling efforts at the large-scale population-level and those at the micro-scale pathogen-level via the use of fluid dynamics. Covers topics such as interfacial flows, fluid fragmentation, multiphase flows, turbulent flows, and fluid-structure interaction. Intended for students with a strong quantitative background interested in learning about applications in health and epidemiology and for students with an epidemiology and health background interested in learning about fluid dynamics approaches relevant to disease transmission. In the spirit of the OneHealth Initiative, covers advanced topics on the health of human, animal, and plant populations.
