Pandemics in films: unraveling mathematical modeling

Conference presented by Jacques Bélair (Université de Montréal)

Since the origin of cinema, infection disease outbreak films have been numerous and displayed a wide range of pathologies, including, in addition to real or "any-resemblance-to-actual-is-pure-coincidence" viruses, vampires, zombies and aliens. A non-comprehensive overview of recent and historical instances will be presented, and a mathematical representation of the last-minute-heroic-world-saving intervention will be discussed.
