1. THE SPREAD OF DISEASE 21 day the river might even vanish! Here is a passage that shows us some of the pitfalls in using rates to predict the future and the past. In the space of one hundred and seventy six years the Lower Mississippi has shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles. That is an average of a trifle over a mile and a third per year. Therefore, any calm person, who is not blind or idiotic, can see that in the Old O¨olitic Silurian Period, just a million years ago next November, the Lower Mississippi was upwards of one million three hundred thousand miles long, and stuck out over the Gulf of Mexico like a fishing-pole.

But note that a and b are not variables in quite the same way that S and I are. For example, a and b will vary if we switch from one disease to another or from one population to another. However, they will stay fixed while we consider a particular disease in a particular population. By contrast, S and I will always be treated as variables. We call a quantity like a or b a parameter.

We could then evaluate f (g(3)) = f (5 · 3 − 3) = f (12) = 122 + 4 · 12 − 1 = 144 + 48 − 1 = 191, while g(f (3)) = g(20) = 97. This process of chaining functions together by using the output of one function as the input for another turns out to be very important later in this Part of math is simply course, and will be taken up again in chapter 3. For now, though, you should learning the language treat it simply as part of the formal language of mathematics, requiring a knowledge of the rules but no cleverness.
