Dynamics of a host-parasite model describing nematode infection in sheep

Cameline Orlendo (University of Glasgow)

Friday 12th June, 2015 16:00-17:00 Maths 416


The distribution of parasites in a host-parasite infection is over-dispersed: few hosts have high concentrations of parasites while many hosts have few parasites.
I will talk about the scenario applied to a gastrointestinal nematode infection in sheep, firstly I will  describe the biological system by a set of ODEs
then I will look at the stability of the system and lastly finish by talking about the equilibrium dynamics of the model.
