Travelling waves of a diffusive Kermack–McKendrick epidemic model with non-local delayed transmission

Abstract

We obtain full information about the existence and non-existence of travelling wave solutions for a general class of diffusive Kermack–McKendrick SIR models with nonlocal and delayed disease transmission. We show that this information is determined by the basic reproduction number of the corresponding ordinary differential model, and the minimal wave speed… (More)
