In this paper, a modified van der Pol equation is considered as a description of the heart action. This model has a number of interesting properties allowing reconstruction of phenomena observed in physiological experiments as well as in Holter electrocardiographic recordings. Our aim is to study periodic solutions of the modified van der Pol equation and take into consideration the influence of feedback and delay which occur in the normal heart action mode as well as in pathological modes. Usage...

We investigate a Lotka-Volterra predator-prey model with state dependent impulsive effects, in which the control strategies by releasing natural enemies and spraying pesticide at different thresholds are considered. We present some sufficient conditions to guarantee the existence and asymptotical stability of semi-trivial periodic solutions and positive periodic solutions.

A model of viral infection of monocytes population by the dengue virus is formulated as a system of four ordinary differential equations. The model takes into account the immune response and nonlinear incidence rate of susceptible and free virus particles. Global stability of the uninfected steady state is investigated. Such a steady state always exists. If it is the only steady state, then it is globally asymptotically stable. If any infected steady state exists, then the uninfected...

Global existence results and long time behavior are provided for a mathematical model describing the propagation of Feline Panleucopenia Virus (FPLV) within a domestic cat population; two transmission modes are involved: a direct one from infective cats to susceptible ones, and an indirect one from the contaminated environment to susceptible cats. A more severe impact of the virus on young cats requires an age-structured model.

In this paper we deal with a model describing the evolution in time of the density of a neural population in a state space, where the state is given by Izhikevich’s two - dimensional single neuron model. The main goal is to mathematically describe the occurrence of a significant phenomenon observed in neurons populations, the synchronization. To this end, we are making the transition to phase density population, and use Malkin theorem to calculate...

The aim of the contribution is to study ODE predator-prey system with a prey population embodying the Allee effect. Particular stationary points are analyzed and the results are illustrated by graphs of numerical solutions for various values of model parameters.

We propose two models of vessel impairment in the process of tumour angiogenesis and we consider three types of treatment: standard chemotherapy, antiangiogenic treatment and a combined treatment. The models are based on the idea of Hahnfeldt et al. that the carrying capacity for any solid tumour depends on its vessel density. In the models proposed the carrying capacity also depends on the process of vessel impairment. In the first model a logistic type equation is used to describe the neoplastic...

A mathematical model of the microalgal growth under various light regimes is required for the optimization of design parameters and operating conditions in a photobioreactor. As its modelling framework, bilinear system with single input is chosen in this paper. The earlier theoretical results on bilinear systems are adapted and applied to the special class of the so-called intermittent controls which are characterized by rapid switching of light and dark cycles. Based on such approach, the following...
