Policy Resistance Undermines Superspreader Vaccination Strategies For Influenza
(Public Library of Science, 2013-03-01)
Theoretical models of infection spread on networks predict that targeting vaccination at individuals with a very large number of contacts (superspreaders) can reduce infection incidence by a significant margin. These models ...
Modelling Interactions Between Forest Pest Invasions And Human Decisions Regarding Firewood Transport Restrictions
(Public Library of Science, 2014-04-15)
The invasion of nonnative, wood-boring insects such as the Asian longhorned beetle (A. glabripennis) and the emerald ash borer (A. planipennis) is a serious ecological and economic threat to Canadian deciduous and mixed-wood ...
Carrot Or Stick? Modelling How Landowner Behavioural Responses Can Cause Incentive-Based Forest Governance To Backfire
(Public Library of Science, 2013-10-30)
Mitigating the negative impacts of declining worldwide forest cover remains a significant socio-ecological challenge, due to the dominant role of human decision-making. Here we use a Markov chain model of land-use dynamics ...
Multimaterial Mesh-Based Surface Tracking
(Association for Computing Machinery, 2014-07-01)
We present a triangle mesh-based technique for tracking the evolution of three-dimensional multimaterial interfaces undergoing complex deformations. It is the first non-manifold triangle mesh tracking method to simultaneously ...
Sexual Behavior, Risk Perception, And Hiv Transmission Can Respond To Hiv Antiviral Drugs And Vaccines Through Multiple Pathways
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-10-28)
There has been growing use of highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART) for HIV and significant progress in developing prophylactic HIV vaccines. The simplest theories of counterproductive behavioral responses to such ...
