    • A Two-Patch Epidemic Model with Nonlinear Reinfection 

      Calvo Alpízar, Juan Gabriel; Hernádez Alvarado, Alberto José; Porter, Mason A.; Sánchez Peña, Fabio Ariel (2019-12)
      The propagation of infectious diseases and its impact on individuals play a major role in disease dynamics, and it is important to incorporate population heterogeneity into efforts to study diseases. As a simplistic but ...
    • Dengue model with early-life stage of vectors and age-structure within host 

      Sánchez Peña, Fabio Ariel; Calvo Alpízar, Juan Gabriel (2019-12)
      We construct an epidemic model for the transmission of dengue fever with an early-life stage in the vector dynamics and age-structure within hosts. The early-life stage of the vector is modeled via a general function that ...
    • Mathematical and Statistical models as tools for the control ofmosquito-borne diseases: The experience of Costa Rica 

      Sánchez Peña, Fabio Ariel; Barboza Chinchilla, Luis Alberto; Vásquez Brenes, Paola Andrea; García Puerta, Yury Elena; Calvo Alpízar, Juan Gabriel; Chou Chen, Shu Wei; Mery, Gustavo (2021-06-25)
      The modeling of infectious diseases provides valuable input in the development of mitigating strategies and implementation of public health interventions. We highlight results and current research conducted in Costa Rica ...
    • Transmission dynamics of Dengue in Costa Rica: The role of hospitalizations 

      Sánchez Peña, Fabio Ariel; Arroyo Esquivel, Jorge; Vásquez Brenes, Paola Andrea (2019-12)
      For decades, dengue virus has caused major problems for public health officials in tropical and subtropical countries around the world. We construct a compartmental model that includes the role of hospitalized individuals ...
