The Maths of Contagion: Why Things Spread and Why They Stop
Adam Kucharski

Associate Professor

London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

Why are some diseases predictable, and others swamped in uncertainty? And what about the outbreaks that never happen at all? Adam covers how disease like malaria, Zika, Sars and Covid-19 spread, but also how similar kinds of mathematical models can be used to trace the spread of fake news, and even internet memes.

A talk given at The Royal Institution on 30 June 2020.
