Title: Research Problems in Mathematical Modelling for
        Epidemiology and Social Science
Speaker: Yongkuk Kim

Affiliation: Department of Mathematics, Kyungpook National University, Korea

Abstract:

    In this talk I would like to introduce some research problems in
mathematical modelling in epidemiology and social science I am currently
working on.
    First of all, I am interested in making a mathematical model for
malaria transmission in Korea. Our recent work on the tsutsugamushi
disease transmission gives us interesting idea to make a mathematical
model for malaria transmission. The idea and model for malaria will be
discussed in this talk.
    I will also talk about the problem to make some models in social
science, such as National Pension and preserving National Treasures.

Title: Mathematical Modelling for the Tsutsugamushi
        Disease Transmission and its Analysis

Speaker: Byul Nim Kim, Yasuhisa Saito, Yongkuk Kim

Affiliation: Department of Mathematics, Kyungpook National University, Korea

Abstract:

   Tsutsugamushi disease is one of the most febrile illnesses occurring
throughout Korea during fall, which is known as a vector-borne disease
caused by the bite of mites with rickettsial bacteria *Oriental
tsutsugamushi.* The mites have four-stage life cycles: egg, larva,
nymph, and adult. However, *Oriental tsutsugamushi *can be transmitted
only in the larva stage of mites because other stages(nymph and adult)
do not feed onhosts. Although there have been many researches on
tick-borne diseases, we have never seen any mathematical models on such
a mite-borne disease so far.
In the present work, we present a model of the disease and show and
analyze the basic reproduction ratio *R0. *
