Abstract
This article reviews and presents various solved and open problems in the development, analysis, and control of epidemic models. The proper modeling and analysis of spreading processes has been a long-standing area of research among many different fields, including mathematical biology, physics, computer science, engineering, economics, and the social sciences. One of the earliest epidemic models conceived was by Daniel Bernoulli in 1760, which was motivated by studying the spread of smallpox [1]. In addition to Bernoulli, there were many different researchers also working on mathematical epidemic models around this time [2]. These initial models were quite simp...
