2 credits In this course, we will read the recent primary literature in the ecology of infectious diseases as an introduction to the field. Central issues will be the use and limitations of epidemiological models to predict disease transmission, the role of host behavior in transmission, how and when environmental events can predict disease outbreaks, and how and when complex ecological interactions within host communities and within the bodies of hosts can predict disease incidence and severity. Prerequisites: Completion of Biology 201 and 202 or permission of the instructor.

AVERT 117

MATC

An introduction to logic, requiring no prior knowledge of philosophy or mathematics. This course aims at imparting the ability to recognize and construct correct formal deductions and refutations. Our text (Logic: Techniques of Formal Reasoning, 2nd edition, by D. Kalish, R. Montague, and G. Mar.) covers the first order predicate calculus with identity and descriptive phrases; we will cover as much of that as feasible in one semester. There is software for the course, called Logic 2000, developed by Robert Martin and David Kaplan at UCLA in the 1990s and subsequently rewritten for the internet, that will assist students by providing feedback on exercises.
