Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, mathematical analysis has played a critical role in shaping decisions about the transmission of the virus, as well as decisions at all levels of government and business. Researchers in the Illinois Department of Mathematics have begun publishing results of their modeling and simulations on those topics to help guide policy and response.
