Modeling the Effects of Relapse in the Transmission Dynamics of Malaria Parasites
Expected clinical malaria episodes and parasite prevalence at equilibrium, for both P. vivax and P. falciparum. (a) Bifurcation diagram, showing the influence of on the equilibrium levels of clinical malaria for P. vivax (blue) and P. falciparum (red). (c) Influence of on the equilibrium levels of parasite prevalence () for P. vivax (blue) and P. falciparum (red). (b) and (d) are similar to (a) and (c), respectively, but use as control parameter. For P. vivax, we used . Dashed lines represent unstable equilibrium solutions, whilst full lines refer to stable endemic equilibria.
