ECE 69500 - Epidemic ProcessesLecture Hours: 3 Credits: 1
Areas of Specialization(s):Automatic Control
CMPE Special Content Elective
EE Elective - Special Content
Normally Offered: Each Spring
ECE 69500 Intro to Mathematical Fundamentals for Systems & Control Theory; MA 26500 or MA 26200; PHYS 27200
Requisites by Topic:
Linear algebra, control theory, probability theory, and optimization
This course provides a control theory and data science approach to traditional epidemic models. Traditional epidemiological ideas will be explored and combined with probability theory and systems theoretic ideas to be able to capture spread behavior, learn from data, and design mitigation techniques. Namely, the course consists of four modules: 1) Group Virus Models, 2) Solutions and Limiting Behavior, 3) Model Parameter Identification, and 4) Mitigation Algorithms.
This is a 1-credit, 5-week course that runs in weeks 6-10. For more information on this course and pre-requisite/subsequent courses, please go to https://sites.google.com/view/philpare/teaching.
