The paper “A mathematical model for the transmission of louse-borne relapsing fever” co-authored by Ahuod Alsheri and Stephen Gourley has been published in the June issue of the European Journal of Applied Mathematics (link here). The paper derives a model for LBRF consisting of seven coupled delay differential equations. Then extensive analysis of the model is presented. The model outcomes lead to strategies for eradication of LBRF. Further information about louse-borne relapsing fever can be found here.
