On a SEIR-type model of COVID-19 using piecewise and stochastic differential operators undertaking management strategies
In this work, an epidemic model of a susceptible, exposed, infected and recovered SEIR-type is established for the distinctive dynamic compartments and epidemic characteristics of COVID-19 as it spreads across a population with a heterogeneous rate. The proposed model is investigated using a novel approach of fractional calculus known as piecewise derivatives. The existence theory is demonstrated through the establishment of sufficient conditions. In addition, result related to Hyers-Ulam stability is also derived for the considered model. A numerical method based on modified Euler procedure is also constructed to simulate the approximate solutions of the proposed model by employing various values of fractional orders. We testified the numerical results by using real available data of Japan. In addition, some results for the SEIR-type model are also presented graphically using the stochastic process, and the obtained results are discussed.
