Using an existing ordinary differential equation model which describes the interaction of the immune system with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), we introduce chemotherapy in an early treatment setting through a dynamic treatment and then solve for an optimal chemotherapy strategy. The control represents the percentage of effect the chemotherapy hasā¦ (More)

Optimal control theory is applied to a system of ordinary differential equations modeling a two-strain tuberculosis model. Seeking to reduce the latent and infectious groups with the resistant-strain tuberculosis, we use controls representing two types of treatments. The optimal controls are characterized in terms of the optimality system, which is solvedā¦ (More)

We examine an ordinary differential system modeling the interaction of the HIV virus and the immune system of the human body. The optimal control represents a percentage effect the chemotherapy has on the interaction of the CD4+T cells with the virus. We maximize the benefit based on the T cell count and minimize the systemic cost based on the percentage ofā¦ (More)

While cholera has been a recognized disease for two centuries, there is no strategy for its effective control. We formulate a mathematical model to include essential components such as a hyperinfectious, short-lived bacterial state, a separate class for mild human infections, and waning disease immunity. A new result quantifies contributions to the basicā¦ (More)

We consider an SIR metapopulation model for the spread of rabies in raccoons. This system of ordinary differential equations considers subpopulations connected by movement. Vaccine for raccoons is distributed through food baits. We apply optimal control theory to find the best timing for distribution of vaccine in each of the linked subpopulations acrossā¦ (More)

The paper considers a deterministic model for the transmission dynamics of West Nile virus (WNV) in the mosquito-bird-human zoonotic cycle. The model, which incorporates density-dependent contact rates between the mosquito population and the hosts (birds and humans), is rigorously analyzed using dynamical systems techniques and theories. These analysesā¦ (More)

We consider a mathematical model of drug therapy for chronic myelogenous leukemia for an individual patient over a fixed time horizon. The disease dynamics are given by a system of ordinary differential equations that describe the interaction between naive T cells, effector T cells and leukemic cancer cells in a hypothetical patient. We introduce two drugā¦ (More)

An optimal control problem for an elliptic variational inequality with a source term is considered. The obstacle is the control, and the goal is to keep the solution of the variational inequality close to the desired pro le while the H norm of the obstacle is not too large. The addition of the source term strongly a ects the needed compactness result forā¦ (More)

Arguably one of the most important effects of climate change is the potential impact on human health. While this is likely to take many forms, the implications for future transmission of vector-borne diseases (VBDs), given their ongoing contribution to global disease burden, are both extremely important and highly uncertain. In part, this is owing not onlyā¦ (More)
