  • A model for control of HIV/AIDS with parental care 

    Abiodun, Gbenga Jacob; Marcus, Nizar; Okosun, Kazeem Oare; Witbooi, Peter J. (World Scientific Publishing, 2013)
    In this study we investigate the HIV/AIDS epidemic in a population which experiences a significant flow of immigrants. We derive and analyze a mathematical model that describes the dynamics of HIV infection among the ...
  • A model of HIV/AIDS population dynamics including ARV treatment and pre-exposure prophylaxis 

    Nsuami, Mozart U.; Witbooi, Peter J. (SpringerOpen, 2018)
    Antiretroviral treatment (ART) and oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) have recently been used efficiently in management of HIV infection. Pre-exposure prophylaxis consists in the use of an antiretroviral medication to ...
  • A model of population dynamics of TB in a prison system and application to South Africa 

    Witbooi, Peter J.; Vyambwera, Sibaliwe Maku (BioMed Central, 2017)
    BACKGROUND: Tuberculosis (TB) continues to spread in South African prisons in particular, as prisons are over-capacitated and have poor ventilation. The awaiting trial detainees are not screened on admission and are at ...
  • Multiplication of Crowns 

    Witbooi, Peter J. (Instituto de Matematica de Bahia Blanca (INMABB-CONICET), 2013)
    It is known that the only nite topological spaces that are H-spaces are the discrete spaces. For a nite poset which is weakly equivalent to an H-space, a generalized multiplication may be found after suitable ...
  • Numerical treatment of Kap's equation using a class of fourth order method 

    Akanbi, M.A.; Okunuga, S.A.; Sofoluwe, A.B. (Academic Journals, 2011)
    Kap's equation is a stiff initial value problem. This paper deals with the treatment of Kap's equation using a class of 4th order explicit Runge-Kutta method. Numerical computation was carried out using Microsoft Visual ...
  • An optimal portfolio and capital management strategy for basel III compliant commercial banks 

    Muller, Grant E.; Witbooi, Peter J. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014)
    We model a Basel III compliant commercial bank that operates in a financial market consisting of a treasury security, a marketable security, and a loan and we regard the interest rate in the market as being stochastic. We ...
  • A robust spectral method for solving Heston’s model 

    Ngounda, E.; Patidar, Kailash C.; Pindza, E. (Springer Verlag, 2014)
    In this paper, we consider the Heston’s volatility model (Heston in Rev. Financ. Stud. 6: 327–343, 1993]. We simulate this model using a combination of the spectral collocation method and the Laplace transforms method. ...
  • An SEIRS epidemic model with stochastic transmission 

    Witbooi, Peter J. (Springer, 2017)
    For an SEIRS epidemic model with stochastic perturbations on transmission from the susceptible class to the latent and infectious classes, we prove the existence of global positive solutions. For sufficiently small values ...
  • Self-similarity of human protein interaction networks: a novel strategy of distinguishing proteins 

    Fadhal, Emad; Gamieldien, Junaid; Mwambene, Eric (2015)
    The successful determination of reliable protein interaction networks (PINs) in several species in the post-genomic era has hitherto facilitated the quest to understanding systems and structural properties of such networks. ...
  • Stability of an SEIR epidemic model with indepenent stochastic perturbations 

    Witbooi, Peter J. (Elsevier, 2013)
    For an epidemic model of the type mentioned, we prove a theorem on almost sure exponential stability of the disease-free equilibrium. For small values of the diffusion parameter, σ, we describe the stability of the disease ...
