In this paper, a NonStandard Finite Difference (NSFD) scheme is constructed, which can be used to determine numerical solutions for an epidemic model with vaccination. Here the NSFD method is employed to derive a set of difference equations for the epidemic model with vaccination. We show that difference equations have the same dynamics as the original differential system, such as the positivity of the solutions and the stability of the equilibria, without being restricted by the time step. Our...

We formulate and analyze an unconditionally stable nonstandard finite difference method for a mathematical model of HIV transmission dynamics. The dynamics of this model are studied using the qualitative theory of dynamical systems. These qualitative features of the continuous model are preserved by the numerical method that we propose in this paper. This method also preserves the positivity of the solution, which is one of the essential requirements when modeling epidemic diseases. Robust numerical...

We propose a finite difference semi-discrete scheme for the approximation of the boundary exact controllability problem of the 1-D beam equation modelling the transversal vibrations of a beam with fixed ends. First of all we show that, due to the high frequency spurious oscillations, the uniform (with respect to the mesh-size) controllability property of the semi-discrete model fails in the natural functional setting. We then prove that there are two ways of restoring the uniform controllability...

Algorithms for finding an approximate solution of boundary value problems for systems of functional ordinary differential equations are studied. Sufficient conditions for consistency and convergence of these methods are given. In the last section, a construction of methods of arbitrary order is presented.

We present the derivation of the explicit formulae of BDF coefficients for equidistant time step.

This paper studies kinematic properties of the rear axle of the particle coach as function of driver’s activity. The main goals are the prediction of the trajectory, the computation of the vector of velocity of each wheel of the rear axle as a function of the real velocity vector of the front coach axle and the real curvature of the bus trajectory. The computer algebra system MAPLE was used for all necessary computations.
