We present a space-time influenza model applicable to a large spatial region having variable population density. Spatial dependence is embodied in mobility effects (neighborhood diffusion and long-range travel), while temporal dependence arises from epidemic parameters and seasonal envelope. In discrete form, the model has been implemented to solve a nonlinear-diffusion system on each 10 km pixel of a USA map. The model software implementation (URL download [8]) allows users to adjust a number… CONTINUE READING
