Dynamics of a waterborne pathogen model with spatial heterogeneity and general incidence rate. (English) Zbl 1431.35215
Summary: This paper is concerned with the dynamics of a waterborne pathogen model with spatial heterogeneity and general incidence rate. We first establish the well-posedness of this model. Then we clarify the relationship between the local basic reproduction number \(\tilde{\mathcal{R}}\) and the basic reproduction number \(\mathcal{R}_0\). It could be seen that \(\mathcal{R}_0\) plays an important role in determining the global dynamics of this model. In fact, we show that the disease-free equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable when \(\mathcal{R}_0 < 1\). If \(\mathcal{R}_0 = 1\), then the disease-free equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable under some assumptions. In addition, the phenomena of uniform persistence occurs when \(\mathcal{R}_0 > 1\). We also consider the local and global stability of endemic equilibrium when all the parameters of this model are constant. In the case \(\mathcal{R}_0 > 1\), we further establish the existence of traveling wave solutions of this model. Moreover, we provide an example and numerical simulations to support our theoretical results. Our model extended some known results.
