  • Abstract : We consider a behavioral SIR epidemic model to describe the action of the public health system aimed at enhancing the social distancing during an epidemic outbreak. An optimal control problem is proposed where the control acts in a specific way on the contact rate. We show that the optimal control of social distancing is able to generate a period doubling–like phenomenon. Namely, the ‘period’ of the prevalence is double the ‘period’ of the control, and an alternation of small and large peaks of disease prevalence can be observed.
