Article 0 Reads 0 Citations Analysis and Optimal Control Intervention Strategies of a Waterborne Disease Model: A Realistic Case Study Obiora Cornelius Collins, Kevin Jan Duffy Published: 21 November 2018
Journal of Applied Mathematics, doi: 10.1155/2018/2528513

A mathematical model is formulated that captures the essential dynamics of waterborne disease transmission under the assumption of a homogeneously mixed population. The important mathematical features of the model are determined and analysed. The model is extended by introducing control intervention strategies such as vaccination, treatment, and water purification. Mathematical analyses of the control model are used to determine the possible benefits of these control intervention strategies. Optimal control theory is utilized to determine how to reduce the spread of a disease with minimum cost. The model is validated using a cholera outbreak in Haiti.

We analyse a predator-prey model with cubic growth in which animal movement are incorporated. We focus on the behaviour of the bands of animals to understand the global dynamic of the system. Travelling waves analyses are used to describe the time evolution of the system and to examine the interplay between the bands. We also highlight the influence of individuals behaviours on the collective behaviour of the bands. More importantly, we show the multi-dynamics that diffusion can cause, and we illustrate the patterns formed in the model as a result of a new phenomenon called transport-driven instability. This study shows how sustainable ecosystems could manipulate their movement characteristics to remain stable and viable.
