Abstract:
This thesis covers the formulation and analysis of a number of deterministic, continuous models of infection by a disease such as bovine tuberculosis in one species (essentially badgers) and in two mutually infective species (badgers and cattle). We examine the dynamics of the disease in each model and then consider the effects of the application of different badger culling strategies which have the objective of eliminating the disease in cattle.
