Dynamics of Drug Resistance: Optimal Control of an Infectious Disease.


nor Lipschitz continuous suggesting that numerical approaches to this family of dynamic infectious disease models may not be computationally stable. Furthermore, we demonstrate that relaxing the standard assumption of constant disease transmission rate can fundamentally change the shape of the action region, add a singular arc to the optimal control, and make preserving the drug for a serious outbreak optimal. In addition, we apply our framework to the case of antibiotic resistant gonorrhea.
