Article
Full-text available
There is an increasing realization that industrial, large-scale agriculture can negatively impact both food quality and the environment, and that alternatives should be thoroughly considered. Consisting of various participants with distinct and often competing interests, organic food chains have a dynamic structure. We consider an evolutionary game...
Article
Full-text available
The global economic trends and the winds of technological change have elevated the status of integration between industry and education for innovation and entrepreneurship to that of being a national strategic priority of China. However, for a long time prior to that, the many differences between the industrial and educational systems have caused a...

Full-text available
In this paper, we assess the relevance of social and cognitive factors such as self-efficacy, locus of control and exposure to negative social influence in relation to undergraduate student dropout. To this purpose, we analyze a compartmental model involving a system of nonlinear ODEs, which is loosely based upon the SIR model of mathematical epide...
Article
Full-text available
We model a common teller–customer interaction occurring in the Ghanaian banking sector via a Double-X queuing network consisting of three single servers with infinite-capacity buffers. The servers are assumed to face independent general renewal of customers and independent identically distributed general service times, the inter-arrival and service...
Article
Full-text available
We examine the effectiveness and sustainability of the distance teacher education program established by the University of Education, Winneba, Ghana, by investigating the differences in the academic performance of students who are trained in the teacher education program via traditional and distance education modes, respectively, from 2011 to 2015....
Article
This paper proposes and investigates a model for rumor spreading and control which accounts for different attitudes and for a distinct type of variable, related to the strength and effectiveness of rumor inhibiting mechanisms. The control mechanisms essentially amount to budgeting and to adjusting the attitude of spreaders. The existence and stabil...
Article
In this paper, we propose and analyze from a stability viewpoint a deterministic, ODE-based class of rumor spreading models with two distinct inhibiting and adjusting mechanisms, together with its corresponding stochastic counterpart. For the deterministic model, a threshold parameter R 0 defined ad hoc, called the basic influence number, is us...

Full-text available
Cigarette smoking on college campuses has become a significant public health issue, which in turn led to an increasing focus on establishing programs to reduce its prevalence. In this paper, a compartmental model depicting the spread and cessation of the smoking habit on college campuses, obtained using theoretical principles often employed in math...
Article
We model a multi-divisional firm as a queueing system consisting in interconnected nodes, each project passing through queues, processing and quality assurance checks. It is assumed that the uptake of projects into processing is delayed by the availability of resources and by the size of the queue. The costs of delays are linearly dependent on queu...
Article
A metapopulation model which explicitly integrates vector-borne and sexual transmission of an epidemic disease with passive and active movements between an urban city and a satellite city is formulated and analysed. The basic reproduction number of the disease is explicitly determined as a combination of sexual and vector-borne transmission paramet...
Article
We formulate a model of HIV transmission which keeps track of two interacting high-risk groups, namely female sex workers (FSW) and male injecting drug users (IDU), along with a third “bridge” group of male drug-free clients (DFC). To determine the global asymptotic behaviour of the model, we first consider the dynamics of an n-group SIR model feat...
Chapter
Mutualism refers to any species interaction in which the presence of one species benefits the others. While many specific models of two-species mutualism have been developed and analyzed, comparatively, more attention has been devoted to antagonistic interactions among species (i.e., predation and competition). However, recent work revisited the pr...
Article
Full-text available
Many models of mutualism have been proposed and studied individually. In this paper, we develop a general class of models of facultative mutualism that covers many of such published models. Using mild assumptions on the growth and self-limiting functions, we establish necessary and sufficient conditions on the boundedness of model solutions and pro...
Article
We establish boundedness results for a model of mutualism with an arbitrary number of species which encompasses several classic two-species models, even when extended to their respective multidimensional versions. These conditions are obtained under fairly general assumptions on the mathematical form of the functions modelling the mutualistic inter...
Article
The goal of a future free from schistosomiasis in Ghana can be achieved through integrated strategies, targeting simultaneously several stages of the life cycle of the schistosome parasite. In this paper, the transmission of schistosomiasis is modeled as a multi-scale 12-dimensional system of ODEs that includes vector-host and within-host dynamics...
Article
In this paper, deterministic and stochastic SEIRI epidemic models featuring a distributed latent period and general, unspecified nonlinear incidence and growth rates for the susceptible class are proposed and investigated from a stability viewpoint. By applying Lyapunov–LaSalle invariance principle, we first obtain sufficient conditions for the glo...
Article
Predation is a major cause of early-stage mortality for prey individuals, which are often forced to use refuges in order to reduce the risk of being consumed. The ability of certain genotypes in a prey population to reach a size refuge from predation may contribute significantly to the preservation of community diversity. We investigate how the spe...
Article
We analyze the dynamics of three models of mutualism, establishing the global stability of coexisting equilibria by means of Lyapunov's second method. This further establishes the usefulness of certain Lyapunov function-als of an abstract nature introduced in an earlier paper. As a consequence, it is seen that the use of higher order self-limiting...
Article
This paper proposes and investigates a delayed model for the dynamics and control of a mosquito population which is subject to an integrated strategy that includes pesticide release, the use of mechanical controls and the use of the sterile insect technique (SIT). The existence of positive equilibria is characterized in terms of two threshold quant...
Article
We analyze the global stability of the coexisting equilibria for several models of commensalism, first by devising a procedure to modify several Lyapunov functionals which were introduced earlier for corresponding models of mutualism, further confirming their usefulness. It is seen that commensalism promotes global stability, in connection with hig...
Article
This paper proposes and investigates a model for the spread of an infection into a plant population, considering the effects of both primary and secondary infections. We determine the basic reproduction number of the plant pathogens R 0 and prove that if R 0 > 1, then the positive equilibrium is globally stable, provided that several auxiliary ineq...
Article
It is conceivable that genetically modified mosquitoes could stop the spread of malaria, by outcompeting the wild mosquitoes and interfering with their reproductive processes, and genetically inheriting and further transmitting a diminished potential to carry Plasmodium.To get insight into the possible outcomes, we formulate an ODE model for the in...

We analyze the dynamics of a disease propagation model with relapse under the assumption that the incidence of infection is given in an abstract, possibly bi-nonlinear form. Sufficient conditions for the local stability of equilibria are obtained by means of Lyapunov’s second method and it is shown that global stability can be attained under suitab...

By the superficial grafting of monochlorotriazinyl-β-cyclodextrin (MCT-β-CD) on a special paper (Japanese veil), hosting nanocavities are generated, which can include certain guest chemicals for special protection effects (antibacterial nanocoatings, deodorants, UV protector etc). The original results obtained in the experimental research have been...

The dynamics of a n-prey one-predator food web model which is subject to impulsive controls is studied from the viewpoint of finding suffi-cient conditions for the extinction of prey and for prey and predator perma-nence. Using the Floquet theory of impulsively perturbed systems of ordinary differential equations, the local and global stability of...
Article
We consider the dynamics of a general stage-structured predator–prey model which generalizes several known predator–prey, SEIR, and virus dynamics models, assuming that the intrinsic growth rate of the prey, the predation rate, and the removal functions are given in an unspecified form. Using the Lyapunov method, we derive sufficient conditions for...

We consider a two-patch SI model of integrated pest management with dispersal of both susceptible and infective pests between patches. A biological control, consisting of the periodic release of infective pests and a chemical control, consisting of periodic and impulsive pesticide spraying, are employed in order to maintain the size of the pest pop...
Article
Insect pests are common but undesirable elements in ecosystems and represent thorny problems for most developing countries. To prevent pest outbreaks, growers often resort to insect–pathogenic viruses rather than to pesticides which affect human health and the environment. The purpose of this paper is to investigate a new age-structured pest manage...
Article
This paper investigates a compartmental pest management model which divides the pest population into a susceptible and an infective class, while also including a class of pathogenic viruses. The model is age-structured, in the sense that it accounts for the differences in the amounts of pathogenic viruses released by infective pests at various infe...

In this paper, we consider a variable yield model of a single-species growth in a well-stirred tank containing fresh medium, assuming the instances of time as triggering factors in which the nutrient refilling process and the removal of microorganisms by the uptake of lethal external antibiotic are initiated. It is also assumed that the periodic nu...

This paper deals with an impulsive predator-prey model with Beddington–DeAngelis functional response and time delay, in which the evolution of the predators takes them through two stages, juvenile and mature. It is assumed that only mature predators are able to hunt for prey and reproduce and the time delay is understood as being the time spent by...
