Temporal evolution of immunity distributions in a population with waning and boosting

Abstract:

We investigate the temporal evolution of the distribution of immunities in a population, which is determined by various epidemiological, immunological and demographical phenomena: after a disease outbreak, recovered individuals constitute a large immune population, however their immunity is waning in the long term and they may become susceptible again. Meanwhile, their immunity can be boosted by repeated exposure to the pathogen, which is linked to the density of infected individuals present ...
