2.13 Heterogeneous boundary conditions

This example implements a spatially coupled SIR model with the following dynamics for the density of susceptible, infected, and recovered individuals:

\[\begin{split}\partial_t s &= D \nabla^2 s - \beta is \\ \partial_t i &= D \nabla^2 i + \beta is - \gamma i \\ \partial_t r &= D \nabla^2 r + \gamma i\end{split}\]

Here, \(D\) is the diffusivity, \(\beta\) the infection rate, and \(\gamma\) the recovery rate.
