Based on the state transitions, the corresponding differential equations and cost functions are established, then building the corresponding optimal control problem, where the vaccine efficiency and drug efficiency are controlled variables. This nonlinear optimal control problem is solved by Pontryaginâ€™s maximum principle to finding the structure of the optimal control strategies. Based on the definition of the basic regeneration number, yielding the R0 value for the model, then discussed the final epidemic size. In the numerical analysis section, we validate the accuracy of the structure, fitting the behavior of each state and the effect of different parameter values.</p>}, journal={EAI Endorsed Transactions on Pervasive Health and Technology}, author={Liu, Xiuxiu and Gubar, Elena}, year={2024}, month={May} }
