Spatial-Temporal Dynamics in Nonlocal Epidemiological Models ?

  title={Spatial-Temporal Dynamics in Nonlocal Epidemiological Models ?},
  author={Shigui Ruan},
Throughout recorded history, nonindigenous vectors that arrive, establish, and spread in new areas have fomented epidemics of human diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, typhus, plague, and West Nile (Lounibos 2002). The spatial spread of newly introduced diseases is a subject of continuing interest to both theoreticians and empiricists. One strand of theoretical developments (e.g., Kendall 1965; Aronson and Weinberger 1975; Murray 1989) built on the pioneering work of Fisher (1937) and… CONTINUE READING
