This course will introduce students to theoretical perspectives that explain the distribution and determinants of disease in society. The focus will be on the application of these theories to understand the impact of social determinants of health. History of public health development of theories of disease distribution historical and political influences on development of theoretical perspectives ancient theories of health traditional epidemiological models individual-level health behaviour theories and models social-ecological model psychosocial theories social production of disease (political economy of health) ecosocial theory importance of theory application of social epidemiological theories to disease distribution implications for health policy.

Finite Volume Methods for Computing Compressible Flow:
JST Scheme. High Resolution Shock Capturing Schemes. Riemann Solvers. Approximate Riemann Solvers. Flux-Limiters. TVD Schemes etc. Computational Exercises using Matlab/Python/Julia and open source CFD codes such as OpenFOAM and SU7 (Stanford University Unstructured) and implementing these methods for assigned computational flow problems to gain a full understanding of the technique while appreciating its limitations etc.
