Oncolytic virotherapy has been emerging as a promising novel cancer treatment which may be further combined with the existing therapeutic modalities to enhance their effects. To investigate how virotherapy could enhance ...
The problem of determining an optimal trajectory for an autonomous mobile robot in an environment with obstacles is considered. The Leapfrog approach is used to solve the ensuing system of equations derived from the ...
The cancer stem cell hypothesis has gained currency in recent times but concerns remain about its scientific foundations because of significant gaps that exist between research findings and comprehensive knowledge about ...
A mathematical model presented in Berge T, Lubuma JM-S, Moremedi GM, Morris N Shava RK, A simple mathematical model for Ebola in Africa, J Biol Dyn 11(1): 42–74 (2016) for the transmission dynamics of Ebola virus is extended ...
In a recent paper by Mnif [18], a solution to the portfolio optimization with stochastic volatility and constraints problem has been proposed, in which most of the model parameters are time-homogeneous. However, there are ...
More than 20 outbreaks of Ebola virus disease have occurred in Africa since 1976, and yet no adequate treatment is available. Hence, prevention, control measures and supportive treatment remain the only means to avoid the ...
Black pod rot, caused by Phytophthora megakarya, is the main cause of cocoa losses in Cameroon. A few studies have focused on describing black pod epidemics in cocoa yet numerous questions remain. Here, an epidemiological ...

Cocoa mirid, Sahlbergella singularis, is one of the major pests of cocoa in West Africa. It is responsible of several damages in plots. In this paper, we study the dynamics of this pest. Based on biological and ecological ...
The traditional wave equation is mostly, if not always, obtained from a system of first order partial differential equations augmented by constitutive relations. These are often nonlinear and linearizations are forcibly ...
This paper deals with a boundary-value problem for the Stokes equations with a general direction-dependent Navier type slip boundary condition. This problem models the steady laminar flow of an incompressible linearly ...
Mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of chemical transport phenomena are very challenging due to large numbers of species and reactions involved. Reactive transport models for such systems have high degrees of ...
In recent years the coincidence of the operator relations equivalence after extension (EAE) and Schur coupling (SC) was settled for the Hilbert space case. For Banach space operators, it is known that SC implies EAE, but ...

In this work, we compare the performance of some finite difference methods in order to solve an advection-diffusion equation which models atmospheric flows. This flow problem was solved by Clancy [3] using Forward-Time ...
We study two iterative schemes for the finite element approximation of the heat equation coupled with Stokes flow under nonlinear slip boundary conditions of friction type. The iterative schemes are based on Uzawa’s algorithm ...
We consider equivalence, stability and integration of quadratic Hamilton–Poisson systems on the semi-Euclidean Lie–Poisson space se(1,1)∗−. The inhomogeneous positive semidefinite systems are classified (up to affine ...

It is well-known that the Lotka–Volterra predator-prey model has a family of periodic orbits, but does not possess limit cycles and therefore the model is said to be structurally unstable. The Lotka–Volterra model is a ...
Fragmentation‐coagulation processes, in which aggregates can break up or get together, often occur together with decay processes in which the components can be removed from the aggregates by a chemical reaction, evaporation, ...
