mathematical model

A formal framework for conveying ideas about the components of a host-parasite interaction. Construction of an MM requires three major components: a clear understanding of the interaction between the pathogen and the host; information about the mode and rate of transmission between individuals; and host population characteristics, such as demographics and behaviour. MMs can be used to analyse the system’s behaviour under various conditions, and identify the dominant factors generating observed patterns and phenomena. MMs also aid data collection and interpretation and parameter estimation; they provide tools for identifying approaches to control, and for assessing the potential impact of different intervention measures.

A collection of mathematical formulas used to characterise a relationship or process, e.g., in environmental dose reconstruction projects to simulate travel of radionuclides released from weapons facilities through the environment and taken up by the body, which can be used to estimate the health risks caused by said exposures.
