DESCRIPTION:Math Encounters &mdash\; Online:\n \n "\;Beati
ng COVID-19: How mathematics and game theory can h
elp us understand the pandemic"\; with Chris B
auch\n \n Wednesday\, March 3 at 4:00 pm ET (New Y
ork)\n \n Mathematical modeling has come to the fo
refront during the COVID-19 pandemic\, but how do
these models work? \; Join Dr. Chris Bauch\, P
rofessor of Applied Mathematics at the University
of Waterloo\, as he sketches the mathematics behin
d "\;flattening the curve"\; and herd immu
nity. \; Learn why flattening the curve reveal
s an interplay between disease spread and populati
on behavior and how members of the population can
be viewed as engaging in a strategic interaction w
ith one another &mdash\; a "\;game"\; &mda
sh\; that determines the trajectory of the epidemi
c. \; Take part in an audience participatory e
xample\, illustrating how these interactions can b
e analyzed mathematically using game theory &mdash
\; and how math really can help us emerge victorio
us.\n \n Special introduction by Julie Gerberding\
, former director of the CDC and current Executive
Vice President and Chief Patient Officer at Merck
