Paper Abstract

We present an analysis of two features that generalize the original model for the spread of the Hantavirus introduced by Abramson and Kenkre [Phys. Rev. E Vol. 66, 011912 (2002)]. One, the effect of seasonal alternations, may cause the virus to spread under conditions that do not lead to an epidemic under the action of either season alone. The other, the effect of internal fluctuations, modifies the distribution of infected mice and may lead to extinction of the infected population even when the mean population is above epidemic conditions.
