ABSTRACT

We describe an ODE model and a PDE model. A nonlinear diffusion system of partial differential equations is analyzed for investigation of bird flu transmission process within a poultry farm. Effect of threshold number that gives measure of infectious intensity is investigated. It depends on three factors: removal of infected birds, vaccination, and capacity of the farm. Our analysis shows that the transmission of bird flu within a poultry farm is expressible in terms of traveling wave solutions. It also shows a spatial significance of diffusivity.
