Analysis of Ode Models for Malaria Propagation


Epidemiological models play an important role in the study of diseases. These models belong to population dynamics models and can be characterized with differential equations. In this paper we focus our attention on two epidemic models for malaria spreading, namely Ross-, and extended Ross model. As both the continous and the corresponding numerical models should preserve the basic qualitative properties of the phenomenon, we paid special attention to its examination, and proved their invariance with reference to the data set. Moreover, existence and uniqueness of equilibrium points for both models of malaria are considered. We demonstrate the theoritical results with numerical simulations.
