Analysis and implementation of robust numerical methods to solve mathematical models of HIV and Malaria co-infection
(University of the Western Cape, 2011)
There is a growing interest in the dynamics of the co-infection of these two diseases. In this thesis, firstly we focus on studying the effect of a distributed delay representing the incubation period for the malaria ...
A mathematical model for studying the impact of climate variability on malaria epidemics in South Africa
(University of the Western Cape, 2017)
Malaria is most prevalent in tropical climates, where there are sufficient rainfall for mosquitoes to breed and conducive temperatures for both the mosquito and protozoa to live. A slight change in temperature can ...
Mathematical modeling of the transmission dynamics of malaria in South Sudan
(University of the Western Cape, 2019)
Malaria is a common infection in tropical areas, transmitted between humans through female anopheles mosquito bites as it seeks blood meal to carry out egg production. The infection forms a direct threat to the lives of ...
