Abstract: In this talk, we aim to introduce the process of mathematical modeling using differential equations. Basic compartmental models for spread of infectious diseases (mathematical epidemiology) will be described. In particular, models on the impact of awareness on epidemic outbreak will be studied. Also, methods to analyze the local stability of the equilibrium states of the system will be discussed.
