Those notes correspond to a suite of lectures given on the Univer­ sity of Alberta in the course of the spring semester, 1973. the 1st 4 sec­ tions current a scientific improvement of a deterministic, threshold version for the spraad of infection. part five provides a few compu­ tational effects and makes an attempt to tie the version with different arithmetic. In all the final 3 sections a separate, really expert subject is gifted. the writer needs to thank Professor F. Hoppensteadt for making on hand preprints of 2 of his papers and for analyzing and remark­ ing on a initial model of those notes. He additionally needs to thank Professor J. Mosevich for supplying the graphs in part five. The stopover at on the college of Alberta used to be a really friendly one and the writer needs to specific his appreciation to Professors S. Ghurye and J. Macki for the invitation to go to there. eventually, thank you are because of the very efficient secretarial employees on the collage of Alberta for typing the unique draft of the lecture notes and to Mrs. Ada Burns of the college of Iowa for her first-class typescript of the ultimate model. desk OF CONTENTS 1. an easy Epidemic version with everlasting removing . . . • . . . 1 2.
