A Deterministic Model for Gonorrhea in a Nonhomogeneous Population

  title={A Deterministic Model for Gonorrhea in a Nonhomogeneous Population},
  author={A Lajmanovich and James A. Yorke},
The spread of gonorrhea in a population is highly nonuniform. The mathematical model discussed takes this into account, splitting the population into n groups. The asymptotic stability properties are studied. 1. I N T R O D U C T I O N In 1970 gonorrhea led the list of infectious diseases in the number of cases reported to the U.S. Public Health Service, with more cases than the combined total for syphilis, mumps, measles, German measles, and infectious hepatitis. In this paper we construct a… CONTINUE READING
