We study a susceptible–infected–susceptible reaction–diffusion model with spatially heterogeneous disease transmission and recovery rates. A basic reproduction number is defined for the model. We first prove that there exists a unique endemic equilibrium if . We then consider the global attractivity of the disease-free equilibrium and the endemic equilibrium for two cases. If the disease transmission and recovery rates are constants or the diffusion rate of the susceptible individuals is equal to the diffusion rate of the infected individuals, we show that the disease-free equilibrium is globally attractive if , while the endemic equilibrium is globally attractive if .
We consider the diffusion-advection equation ut = uxx + (ε/(1 − u)β)x(ε >0, β >0), 0 < x < 1, t >0, under the boundary conditions ux + ε/(1 − u)β = 0. We prove that there is a critical number ε(β) such that when ε < ε(β) for certain initial data a global solution exists and converges to the corresponding stationary solution; any solution must quench (u reaches one in finite or infinite time) if ε ≧ε(β). We also show that quenching can only occur at x = 0, and that for each ε > 0 there exist initial data for which the solution quenches in finite time.
In this paper, we consider non-negative solutions of
We prove that if pq ≤ 1, every solution is global while if pq > 1, all solutions blow up in finite time. We also show that if p, q ≥ 1, then blow-up can occur only on the boundary.
