  • In this thesis, we study the transmission dynamics and spatial spread of vector borne diseases using mathematical models incorporating different factors, contributing to the com¬plicated transmission dynamics and spatiotemporal spread patterns of vector borne diseases. We focus on the demographic and disease ages of hosts, the culling structured by the age of the vector, the spatial movement of the disease hosts, and the heterogeneity in host populations. We address the above issues and the relevant modeling and analysis techniques via a detailed case studying of the invasion and spread of West Nile virus in North America. Models involved and developed include patchy models with both ...
