Maintaining Hard Infection Caps in Epidemics via the Theory of Barriers

23 Mar 2020 Esterhuizen Willem Aschenbruck Tim Lévine Jean Streif Stefan

Research in epidemiology often focusses on designing interventions that result in the number of infected individuals asymptotically approaching zero, without considering that this number may peak at high values during transients. Recent research has shown that a set-based approach could be used to address the problem, and we build on this idea by applying the theory of barriers to construct admissible and invariant sets for an epidemic model...
