Optimal release of mosquitoes to control dengue transmission. (English. French summary) Zbl 1447.92389
Summary: In order to prevent the propagation of human diseases transmitted by mosquitoes (as dengue or zika), a solution is to release mosquitoes infected by Wolbachia. In this study, we model the release and the propagation over time and space of such infected mosquitoes in a population of uninfected ones. The aim of this study is to investigate the best location in space of the release to ensure invasion by the infected mosquitoes.
