Transmission-dynamic models provide a concrete framework to describe and investigate the properties and behaviours of complex systems of hosts and pathogens. This chapter provides a basic overview of the structure, development, and use of such models. Topics covered include basic model building, extensions necessary for considering important sources of heterogeneity, model calibration, and sensitivity/uncertainty analyses. Examples of insights provided by transmission-dynamic models are provided, and likely future directions are discussed.
