Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) has long been recognized as the single most important virus causing acute severe respiratory-tract infections with symptoms ranging from rhinitis to bronchitis in children who may require hospitalization. Outbreaks of RSV occur every year and all children become infected within the first two years of life, and that(More)
In this paper, we study the dynamics of the transmission of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) in the population using stochastic models. The stochastic models are developed introducing stochastic perturbations on the demographic parameter as well as on the transmission rate of the RSV. Numerical simulations of the deterministic and stochastic models are(More)
Random networks are emerging in epidemiology as a way of simulating more realistic random contact behaviours. A network is a set of nodes representing individuals. Labels or properties may be assigned to each node, for instance, age, sex, state respect to disease (susceptibility, infection, recovery, etc.). Nodes are connected by ties that represent disease(More)
BACKGROUND Meningococcal C (MenC) conjugate vaccines have controlled invasive diseases associated with this serogroup in countries where they are included in National Immunization Programs and also in an extensive catch-up program involving subjects up to 20 years of age. Catch-up was important, not only because it prevented disease in adolescents and young(More)
At the Design Engineering Higher Technical School (Valencia, Spain) we started introducing Lab sessions as a part of the Mathematics curriculum almost 20 years ago. Nowadays they are an integral part of the general assessment of the subject and hardly may we disassociate them given the actual constrains in time that we are facing with the arrival of the new(More)
  Spanish Engineering Schools are evolving by changing their study programs. In the last years at the Escuela Universitaria de Ingeniería Técnica Industrial de Valencia (EUITI Valencia, Spain) we have been trying to harmonize the learning of mathematics courses as engineering tools with the common use of mathematical software in order to solve engineering(More)
