Modeling the Spread of Porphyric Hemophilia
Benjamin Ritz
Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
Porphyric Hemophilia is a blood-borne disease with devastating repercussions. The infected
become gaunt and pale, acquire several severe allergies, and, perhaps worst of all, lust to feed
on human blood. Better known as vampires, these infected spread the disease as they feed.
In response to a growing popularity of vampires in recent years, we have constructed several
mathematical models which represent the spread of vampirism through a human population.
These models draw heavily on both popular culture and the occult folklore regarding vampires, and
may shed some light on these creatures of the night.
