Describing Chagas Disease Spread by Traveling Waves

Vanessa Steindorf, Norberto Anibal Maidana

Resumo


We propose a mathematical model using a system of partial differential reactiondiffusion equations to study and to describe the spread of Chagas disease in the human population in spatial short scale. We determine the speed of the disease propagation by using the traveling wave solutions of the model. We determine the wave speed variation as function of the diffusion coefficient.
