Spatial patterns in a discrete-time SIS patch model. (English) Zbl 1162.92033
Summary: How do spatial heterogeneity, habitat connectivity, and different movement rates among subpopulations combine to influence the observed spatial patterns of an infectious disease? To find out, we formulated and analyzed a discrete-time SIS patch model. Patch differences in local disease transmission and recovery rates characterize whether patches are low-risk or high-risk, and these differences collectively determine whether the spatial domain, or habitat, is low-risk or high-risk. In low-risk habitats, the disease persists only when the mobility of infected individuals lies below some threshold value, but for high-risk habitats, the disease always persists. When the disease does persist, then there exists an endemic equilibrium (EE) which is unique and positive everywhere. This EE tends to a spatially inhomogeneous disease-free equilibrium (DFE) as the mobility of susceptible individuals tends to zero. The limiting DFE is nonempty on all low-risk patches and it is empty on at least one high-risk patch. Sufficient conditions for the limiting DFE to be empty on other high-risk patches are given in terms of disease transmission and recovery rates, habitat connectivity, and the infected movement rate. These conditions are also illustrated using numerical examples.
