Chair: L. Pamela Cook

Abstract: In stochastic models, branching processes furnish important methods for estimating the probability of population extinction or of disease outbreaks. These methods are illustrated in several classic Markov chain population and epidemic models and in new applications to the control of species invasions and of the spatial spread of diseases.
