### A MODIFICATION OF APPROXIMATE RANDOM CHARACTERISTICS FOR A MODEL OF ZIKA VIRUS TRANSMISSION

**ABSTRACT**

In this study, a theoretical model of Zika virus transmission is investigated with random parameters. The parameters of a deterministic model are transformed to random variables to obtain a system of random differential equations. The approximate solutions of the model are analyzed with modified random differential transformation method. It is seen that modified random differential transformation method performs better than random differential transformation method on long time intervals.
