Corona Virus discussion

I know most of the comments on this thread concern the potentially disruptive effects of current health crisis, but I thought I would go ahead and promote what I think is a great series of videos introducing the SIR model.

I am taking an MOOC for differential equations (Coursera) and was pleasantly surprised when I found these videos among the course materials. I don’t have the strongest background in differential equations yet was still able to take a good bit away from these videos so I thought I would share it for all the students that frequent this website.

With your knowledge of C++ you could solve them using odeint


(BTW most models are toys)
