The Curious World of Zombie Science

The Curious World of Zombie Science: „In 2009, University of Ottawa mathematician Robert J. Smith? (and, yes, he really does include a question mark at the end of his name) published a paper in a book about infectious disease modeling titled 'When Zombies Attack! Mathematical Modelling of an Outbreak of Zombie Infection'. It started as a class project, when some students suggested they model zombies in his disease modeling class. 'I think they thought I’d shoot it down,' Smith told NPR, 'but actually I said, go for it.'“ (via BoingBoing)
