Modeling Infectious Diseases in Humans and Animals
Matt J. Keeling & Pejman Rohani


This is a list of errors and typo within the book. Hopefully many of these errors will be corrected in subsequent re-prints.
Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4, Chapter 5, Chapter 6, Chapter 7, Chapter 8.

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

Page 46, Equation (2.60) The two terms on the right hand side should be added together; the minus sign should be a plus sign:
 St+1 = µ + St e-βIt

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Page 123, Equation (4.10)  The last equation should either be the rate of change of the infectious population dIi /dt, or the equation for the force of infection associated with strain i can be written as seen in Program 4.2. The model assumes that λi = β Ii, and that the parameter Ωijk  in Gupta's 1998 paper is zero.

Chapter 5

Chapter 6

Chapter 7

Page 238 (Section 7.2) the expression for the force of infection in a metapopulation is incorrect -- we should be finding the weighted sum of the infection (Yj) not the susceptibles (Xj). In addition, the demoninator should be Nj and not Ni . The full expression should be:
λi = βi Σj   ρij Yj / Nj
