### Applied Math Graduate Student Seminar: Walker Powell, NC State, Mathematical modeling of macroscopic and spatially-distributed population dynamics during a zombie outbreak infection

Zombies are popularly presented in media as resulting from an infectious outbreak. Various modeling assumptions for zombification as an infectious disease are discussed. Populations during the outbreak are then modeled with infectious disease compartment models accounting for various effects such as latent infectious populations, quarantining, etc. Equilibrium and stability conditions for these dynamics are determined,…
