Evolutionary Game Theory and Social Learning Can Determine How Vaccine Scares Unfold
TLDR
We analyze a model based on evolutionary game theory that captures this feedback in the context of vaccine scares, and that also includes social learning. Expand

The impact of human-environment interactions on the stability of forest-grassland mosaic ecosystems
Forest-grassland mosaic ecosystems can exhibit alternative stables states, whereby under the same environmental conditions, the ecosystem could equally well reside either in one state or another,Expand

Statistical physics of vaccination
TLDR
A review of theoretical epidemiology with emphasis on vaccination, as it led from classical models assuming homogeneously mixing (mean-field) populations and ignoring human behavior, to recent models that account for behavioral feedback and/or population spatial/social structure. Expand
