The Solutions for the Eco-Epidemic Model with Homotopy Analysis Method

In this paper, the Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM) has been used to solve an eco-epidemic model equation. The algorithm of approximate analytical solution is obtained. HAM contains the auxiliary parameterhwhich provides us with a convenient way to adjust and control convergence region and rate of solution series. The results obtained show that these algorithms are accurate and efficient for the model.
