  • Abstract

    A stochastic age-structured malaria epidemic model is formulated and analysed.The proposed stochastic model is a perturbation of a deterministic age-structured model where the diffusion terms are driven by a multidimensional Brownian motion. Numerical simulations show that sample paths converge to deterministic trajectories when R0 < 1 whereas a significant difference is observed for R0 > 1.
