This paper aims to study an SIR epidemic model with an asymptotically homogeneous transmission function. The stability of the disease-free and the endemic equilibrium is addressed. Numerical simulations are carried out. Implications of our analytical and numerical findings are discussed critically.
Lignocellulosic wastes are abundant, renewable and inexpensive sources of energy. This wastes contains large amount of residual plant biomass which is non edible material obtained from plant cell walls. Biomass could be obtained from crop, domestic liquid fuel, municipal solid waste and agricultural residuals. In nature, cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin… (More)
The work presented in this paper is a part of the iCHEM STREP project, which aims at developing a new class of technology for biosynthetic infochemical communication by exploiting recent advances in the understanding of both pheromone biosynthesis pathways and the detection of molecules in the insect nervous system. We present the design and development of… (More)
