Stability analysis of drinking epidemic models and investigation of optimal treatment strategy
MetadataShow full item record
In this research we investigate a class of drinking epidemic models, namely the SPARS type models. The basic reproduction number is derived, and the system dynamical behaviours are investigated for both drinking free equilibrium and drinking persistent equilibrium. The purpose is to determine the long term optimal treatment method and the optimal short period vaccination strategy for controlling the population of the periodic drinkers and alcoholics.
