This process is repeated and iterations stopped if the values of the unknowns at the previous iterations are very close to the ones at the present iterations [21].We have chosen the same set of weight factors [A.sub.1] = 0.01, [A.sub.2] = 0.001, [B.sub.1] = 50, and [B.sub.2] = 200 initial state variables [S.sub.h](0) = 300, [I.sub.h](0) = 50, [S.sub.v](0) = 65, and [I.sub.v](0) = 20 to illustrate the effect of different optimal control strategies on the spread of pine wilt disease in a population.
