Dr. Igor Erovenko (Mathematics and Statistics) received new funding from Occidental College for the project “Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics.”

According to the abstract, the project will offer four students from UNCG and Bennett College a research project in the field of mathematical biology that can be informally called “vaccination games.” It involves applying game-theoretic methods to individual decisions on the use of personal protective measures against an infectious disease. The project will address the question of whether an infectious disease can be eradicated through voluntary participation in personal protective measures like vaccination.
