Title: "Multi-scaling modelling in arboviruses epidemics".

Local: Room 1.5, Edifício VII
Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Quinta da Torre, Caparica

Abstract: Arboviruses need two actors besides the viruses: the host and the vector, where each one might live in a time scale of its own. Such a separation of time scales suggests that one might find a much simpler equivalent dynamics. Starting from  a classical arboviruses model, we shall derive a multi-scale approximation that shall eliminate either the vector or the host but, nonetheless, is still equivalent in the sense of being uniformly close to the original system.
