A mathematical model for the propagation of a hantavirus in structured populations

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We analysed a mathematical model for the propagation of Puumala hantavirus (PUU), within a population of bank voles (Clethrionomys glareolus). This model includes the chronological age of individuals and the time elapsed since an individual is infected. The hantavirus propagates via direct transmission (contacts between individuals) and indirect transmission (through the environment). Demographic parameters are population density dependent and the maturation rate is adult density dependent. This leads to a weakly coupled system of hyperbolic equations featuring nonlocal nonlinearities. We give a global existence and uniqueness result.
