Aim of course

Mathematical models play an important role in many areas of socio-economics. One aim of this course is to demonstrate that mathematics has a part even in a somewhat "exotic" area, i.e. the control of illicit drug consumption. The main goal is not only to learn the modelling of dynamical systems (in particular, drug epidemics), but also to get acquainted with the main principles used for finding the optimal controls in the context of illicit drug use (i.e., to find the optimal prevention, treatment, and enforcement mix).

Subject of course

Modelling of drug epidemics with systems of ordinary or partial differential equations; Parametrization of the models with data for the U.S. cocaine epidemic and various Australian drug problems; Solution of the corresponding optimal control models with appropriate maximum principles
