Mathematical Model for Malaria Transmission and Biological Control


Ritesh Pandey, R. N. Singh, P. N. Pandey


In this paper, a nonlinear mathematical model for the control of vector
borne diseases, like malaria is proposed and analyzed. In the modeling process
it is assumed that the mosquito population is controlled by using larvivorous
fish, which partially depends on the larva of mosquito population. It is further
assumed that the mosquito population grows logistically. The equilibria of the
model are obtained and their stability is discussed by using stability theory of
differential equations. Further numerical simulation is performed to verify the
analytically obtained results.

Keywords and Phrases : : Mathematical model, human population, mosquito population, Larvivorous fish population.
