A mathematical model that describes HIV infection of CD4(+) T cells is analyzed. Global dynamics of the model is rigorously established. We prove that, if the basic reproduction number R(0) < or = 1, the HIV infection is cleared from the T-cell population; if R(0) > 1, the HIV infection persists. For an open set of parameter values, the chronic-infection(More)
Various eeects of disease caused death on the host population is studied in an epidemic model of SIR type. The exponential rate for natural birth and death is assumed to be equal so that the total population is balanced in the absence of the disease. The model has the surprising feature that it requires a simple mathematical analysis while revealing(More)
We study a population model for an infectious disease that spreads in the host population through both horizontal and vertical transmission. The total host population is assumed to have constant density and the incidence term is of the bilinear mass-action form. We prove that the global dynamics are completely determined by the basic reproduction number R 0(More)
A symmetric BAM neural network model with delay is considered. Some results of Hopf bifurcations occurring at the zero equilibrium as the delay increases are exhibited. The existence of multiple periodic solutions is established using a symmetric Hopf bifurcation result of Wu [J. Wu, Symmetric functional differential equations and neural networks with(More)
In order to prepare a lightweight and efficient microwave absorbent, porous activated carbon balls (PACB) were used to load Fe(3+) and Co(2+) ions, because the PACB carrier has a high specific surface area of 800 m(2) g(-1) and abundant pores, including micropores and macropores. The loaded Fe(3+) and Co(2+) ions in the PACB composite were transformed into(More)

Disabilities after neural injury, such as stroke, bring tremendous burden to patients, families and society. Besides the conventional constrained-induced training with a paretic arm, bilateral rehabilitation training involves both the ipsilateral and contralateral sides of the neural injury, fitting well with the fact that both arms are needed in common(More)
