A non-standard numerical scheme for an age-of-infection epidemic model

by   Eleonora Messina, et al.

We propose a numerical method for approximating integro-differential equations arising in age-of-infection epidemic models. The method is based on a non-standard finite differences approximation of the integral term appearing in the equation. The study of convergence properties and the analysis of the qualitative behavior of the numerical solution show that it preserves all the basic properties of the continuous model with no restrictive conditions on the step-length h of integration and that it recovers the continuous dynamic as h tends to zero.
