Punk Rock Operations Research tackles a worrisome question: Why aren’t vampires taking over the Earth? If they’re immortal, and they reproduce by biting their prey, then their food supply (us) should be dwindling while the vampire population soars. Vampires might have natural enemies (Buffy) to keep them in check, but given recent litigation by civil liberties groups regarding the rights of the undead, this mechanism may prove insufficient.
Operations research, by the way, is the fascinating science of applying math to solve real-life problems like the best way to drop bombs or spot terrorists. Nice to see it used for something constructive like vampires.
