DeductiveThinking.com now provides the Python programs for the book of M. Keeling & P. Rohani “Modeling Infectious Diseases in Humans and Animals”, Princeton University Press, 2008. The book has on-line material which includes programs for different models in various programming languages and mathematical tools such as, “C++, FORTRAN and Matlab, while some are also coded in the web-based Java programming language to allow readers to quickly experiment with these types of models”, as it is stated at the website. The Python version of the programs were written long ago and submitted to the book’s on line material website (available soon). The Python programs with the basic equations modelled and the results in figures were now uploaded on a special wiki page of DeductiveThinking.com.
Since, the programs are heavily using numpy, scipy and matplotlib libraries, I send this announcement to all the three lists and the main python-list; sorry for double-posting. The announcement with the related links is uploaded here http://blog.deductivethinking.com/?p=29. The programs are at http://wiki.deductivethinking.com/wiki/Python_Programs_for_Modelling_Infectious_Diseases_book. For those who are interested on modelling and epidemiology, they can take a look at the main site (http://deductivethinking.com) or the main page of the wiki (http://wiki.deductivethinking.com) and follow the epidemiology links. The website is in its beginning, so limited information is uploaded up to now.
Thanks for your time and I hope it will be useful for some people,
