Abstract

In this paper, we provide a very accurate, non-perturbative, semi-analytical solution to a system of nonlinear first-order differential equations modeling the transmission of tuberculosis (TB) in a homogeneous population. Our analysis is based on Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM). Maple 15 software is used to carry out the computations. Our results show the validity and potential of HAM for computing the solution of nonlinear equations.
