Eigenvalue Elasticity and Sensitivity Analyses of the Transmission Dynamic Model of Corruption




Corruption, Mathematical Model, Population, Eigenvalue Elasticity Analysis


In this paper, the eigenvalue elasticity and sensitivity values of the mathematical model of transmission dynamics of corruption were obtained and presented using the eigenvalue elasticity and sensitivity analysis methods. The parameter with the greatest impact on the mathematical model was determined using the methods. This parameter will assist the government on how to reduce and provide measures to eradicate corrupt practices among the populace. From the mathematical model of corruption presented, it was obtained that the effective contact rate of corruption has the highest value when using the eigenvalue elasticity and sensitivity analysis.
