# Existence and qualitative properties of travelling waves for an epidemiological model with mutations

@article{Griette2014ExistenceAQ, title={Existence and qualitative properties of travelling waves for an epidemiological model with mutations}, author={Q. Griette and G. Raoul}, journal={arXiv: Analysis of PDEs}, year={2014} }

In this article, we are interested in a non-monotone system of logistic reaction-diffusion equations. This system of equations models an epidemics where two types of pathogens are competing, and a mutation can change one type into the other with a certain rate. We show the existence of minimal speed travelling waves, that are usually non monotonic. We then provide a description of the shape of those constructed travelling waves, and relate them to some Fisher-KPP fronts with non-minimal speed.
