Applied Math Talk: Information Theory, Archetypal Analysis and MT Flu given by Professor Emily Stone (University of Montana-Missoula)

February 17 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

In this talk I will discuss a rather unique collection of tools and how they have been used to understand the spread of Influenza virus in the State of Montana.  With flu counts from each county over a 10 year period some patterns emerge, which explain some vectors of the disease spread.  Archetypal analysis then creates reduced dimension sets, and the dynamics of the flu spread can be understood by parameterizing SIR models with the reduced data.
