This project is a mathematical analysis and computational study of the 2001 foot and mouth epidemic in the UK. This model includes an application of the SIR model, developed by W. O. Kermack and A. G. McKendrick, with two additional factors: vaccination and incubation period infectives. The incubation period infectives represent the population of individuals infected with the disease that do not show symptoms, but still have the possibility of infecting other individuals.
