Just a quick one this time:
A team of Canadian mathematicians have been picking their large, delectable brains over whether humankind could survive a zombie apocalypse.
Mr. Imad, Philip Munz, Ioan Hudea and Robert J. Smith researched zombies for several months. They used mathematical equations to map several types of outbreak, including a basic model where everyone becomes infected, a scenario where the outbreak was quarantined and a situation where a cure was developed.
They defined zombies as “a reanimated human corpse that feeds on living human flesh.”
The paper is technical but fairly readable.
