A few years ago I wrote something for lablit explaining infectious disease modelling in terms of zombies. A colleague now brings my attention to a splendid paper entitled “WHEN ZOMBIES ATTACK!: MATHEMATICAL MODELLING OF AN OUTBREAK OF ZOMBIE INFECTION”, which is available here.

May I say how delighted I am that someone is taking this important issue seriously?

UPDATE: zombies discussed on the today programme!  (http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_8206000/8206612.stm)
