We use a stochastic Markovian dynamics approach to describe the spreading of vector-transmitted diseases, such as dengue, and the threshold of the disease. The coexistence space is composed of two structures representing the human and mosquito populations. The human population follows a susceptible-infected-recovered (SIR) type dynamics and the mosquito population follows a susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) type dynamics. The human infection is caused by infected mosquitoes and vice versa…

Critical behavior in a stochastic model of vector mediated epidemics
A stochastic lattice model able to capture the critical behavior of such epidemics over a limited time horizon and with a finite amount of resources is analyzed, exhibiting a critical line of transition that separates spreading and non-spreading phases.
The Effects of a Backward Bifurcation on a Continuous Time Markov Chain Model for the Transmission Dynamics of Single Strain Dengue Virus
Global incidence of dengue, a vector-borne tropical disease, has seen a dramatic increase with several major outbreaks in the past few decades. We formulate and analyze a stochastic epidemic model
Stochastic Approach to Epidemic Spreading
We analyze four models of epidemic spreading using a stochastic approach in which the primary stochastic variables are the numbers of individuals in each class. The stochastic approach is described
Estimating the basic reproduction number for single-strain dengue fever epidemics
Estimates for the value of the basic reproduction number R0 associated with the 2011 dengue fever epidemic are obtained before the implementation of public health control measures and it is observed that there is strong agreement in estimates for the pre-control value of R0, both across different methodologies as well across different models.
A mathematical model for Zika virus transmission dynamics with a time-dependent mosquito biting rate
A vector-borne compartmental model to analyze the spread of the ZIKV during the 2015–2016 outbreaks in Bahia, Brazil and to investigate the impact of two vector control strategies, namely, reducing mosquito biting rates and reducing mosquito population size.
An online spatiotemporal prediction model for dengue fever epidemic in Kaohsiung (Taiwan)
A stochastic framework to integrate space–time dynamics in the form of a Susceptible‐Infected‐Recovered (SIR) model, together with uncertain disease observations, into a Bayesian maximum entropy (BME) framework is proposed and can be used to predict space-time disease spread.
Inferring Plasmodium vivax Transmission Networks from Tempo-Spatial Surveillance Data
This work proposes a spatial transmission model that takes into account multiple real-world factors, including the length of P. vivax incubation period, the impact of malaria control at different locations, and the total number of imported cases, and introduces a recurrent neural network model to infer the transmission networks from surveillance data.
Dinâmica estocástica de populações biológicas
In this thesis we investigate irreversible models within the context of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics motivated by some problems of biological population dynamics. We look for identifying the


Modelling the dynamics of dengue real epidemics
It is shown that the control applied only to the adult stage of the mosquito population is not sufficient to stop dengue transmission, emphasizing the importance of applying the control to the aquatic phase of the mosquitoes.

An analysis of the distribution of epidemic sizes and epidemic durations suggests that the dynamical structure observed in the measles case returns reflects the existence of an underlying scaling mechanism, which means that the dynamics are not as purely stochastic as is usually thought for epidemiological systems of this sort.
Periodic forcing in a three-level cellular automata model for a vector-transmitted disease.
The periodically forced two-dimensional cellular automata model is used to reproduce and analyze the complex spatiotemporal patterns observed in the transmission of vector infectious diseases, and predicts a completely distinct long-time evolution in the extreme situation of the absence of external periodic drive.
Susceptible-infected-recovered and susceptible-exposed-infected models
Two stochastic epidemic lattice models, the susceptible-infected-recovered and the susceptible-exposed-infected models, are studied on a Cayley tree of coordination number k. The spreading of the
A model of the transmission of dengue fever with an evaluation of the impact of ultra-low volume (ULV) insecticide applications on dengue epidemics.
The model indicates that ULV has little impact on disease incidence, even when multiple applications are made, although the peak of the epidemic may be delayed, and decreasing the carrying capacity of the environment for mosquitoes, is more effective in reducing transmission.
Transmission dynamics and epidemiology of dengue: insights from age-stratified sero-prevalence surveys.
Age-stratified serological data reveal evidence of a propensity for the annual incidence of infection to oscillate over time with a frequency of several years and support for the hypothesis that antibody-dependent enhancement of transmission influences observed epidemiological pattern.

The critical behavior of the stochastic asynchronous susceptible-infected-recovered model is consistent with the two-dimensional percolation universality class, but local growth probabilities differ from those of dynamicPercolation cluster growth, as is demonstrated explicitly.
Controlling Dispersal Dynamics of Aedes aegypti
A mathematical model is developed that takes into account the diffusion and advection phenomena of the dengue disease vector and a discrete model based on the cellular automata approach, which is a good framework to deal with small populations, is developed.
Critical behavior of the contact process in a multiscale network
The contact process (CP) in a multiscale network constituted by one-dimensional chains connected through a Barabási-Albert scale-free network is investigated, demonstrating that the CP on this hybrid network and nonvanishing travel rates establishes a new universality class.
