Exogenous variable Used variable Depending on Default value
Natural per-capita natality rate Rna [/day] SEC For simplicities' sake, Rna equals the natural death rate
Natural per-capita death rate Rmo [/day] SEC 1/(52.5*365) for intermediate conditions
Average infected period ν [years] Parasite species 0.9–1.5 for Plasmodium falciparum; 3 for Plasmodium vivax
Mean duration of immunity τ [years]   1.5
