The picture that emerges with regard to social network weights is rather mixed. SN(More)
We propose a mathematical model describing the dynamics of hepatitis B or C virus infection. The method of characteristics reduces the age-structured model to a system of differential equations with distributed delay. The model is rigorously analyzed, and a detailed stability analysis is performed. The model, consisting of two mutually exclusive(More)
