A geometric analysis of the SIRS epidemiological model on a homogeneous network

A fast–slow version of an SIRS epidemiological model on homogeneous graphs obtained through the application of the moment closure method is studied, showing that the model can give rise to periodic solutions, differently from the corresponding model based onHomogeneous mixing.

Use of singular perturbation theory in the analysis of epidemic models

We analyse models of SIR and SIRS type [3], using singular perturbation theory exploiting the difference in time-scales between the infection period and the typical period of susceptible recruitment

On matrix-SIR Arino models with linear birth rate, loss of immunity, disease and vaccination fatalities, and their approximations (preprint)/ en

The main result shows that for simple “matrix epidemic models” introduced in [1], an explicit general formula for the reproduction number R and the corresponding “weak stability alternative” still holds, under small modifications, for models with nonconstant population size, and even when the model allows for vaccination and loss of immunity.

Dynamics of an SIRWS model with waning of immunity and varying immune boosting period

The results highlight that the length of the period in which waning immunity can be boosted is a crucial parameter significantly influencing long term epidemiological dynamics, and allow an asymmetric partitioning of the total immune period.

Stability Analysis of an Eight Parameter SIR-Type Model Including Loss of Immunity, and Disease and Vaccination Fatalities

We revisit here a landmark five-parameter SIR-type model, which is maybe the simplest example where a complete picture of all cases, including non-trivial bistability behavior, may be obtained using

Discrete epidemic models with two time scales

It is shown that there exist conditions under which a locally endemic disease, considering isolated patches in a metapopulation, can be eradicated globally by establishing the appropriate movements between patches.

A minimal model for adaptive SIS epidemics

The interplay between disease spreading and personal risk perception is of key importance for modelling the spread of infectious diseases. We propose a planar system of ordinary differential equations

Forecasting the outcome and estimating the epidemic model parameters from the fatality time series in COVID-19 outbreaks

It is shown that the cumulative number of deaths can be regarded as a master variable, and the parameters of the epidemic such as the basic reproduction number, the size of the susceptible population, andThe infection rate can be determined.

Discrete-time Layered-network Epidemics Model with Time-varying Transition Rates and Multiple Resources

This paper studies a discrete-time time-varying multi-layer networked SIWS (susceptible-infected-water-susceptible) model with multiple resources under both single-virus and competing multi-virus



The effect of age-dependent host mortality on the dynamics of an endemic disease.

Heterogeneous population dynamics and scaling laws near epidemic outbreaks.

This theory shows that one may be able to anticipate whether a bifurcation point is close before it happens, and shows various aspects of heterogeneity have crucial influences on the scaling laws that are used as early-warning signs for the homogeneous system.

Global Stability of Infectious Disease Models Using Lyapunov Functions

Two systematic methods are presented to guide the construction of Lyapunov functions for general infectious disease models and are thus applicable to establish their global dynamics. Specifically, a

A contribution to the mathematical theory of epidemics

The present communication discussion will be limited to the case in which all members of the community are initially equally susceptible to the disease, and it will be further assumed that complete immunity is conferred by a single infection.

Some Extensions of Liapunov's Second Method

>In the study of the stability of a system, it is never completely satisfactory to know only that an equilibrium state is asymptotically stable. As a practical matter, it is necessary to have some


Numerical and analytical techniques show that if the ratio of the time-scales in the FitzHugh-Nagumo equation tends to zero, then the singular limit analysis correctly represents the observed CU-structure.

Multiscale Geometry of the Olsen Model and Non-classical Relaxation Oscillations

The geometric decomposition developed forms the basis to prove the existence of mixed-mode and chaotic oscillations in the Olsen model, which will be discussed in more detail in future work.

An Introduction to Mathematical Epidemiology

The book is a comprehensive, self-contained introduction to the mathematical modeling and analysis of infectious diseases and includes various techniques for the computation of the basic reproduction number as well as approaches to the epidemiological interpretation of the reproduction number.

The Mathematics of Infectious Diseases

Threshold theorems involving the basic reproduction number, the contact number, and the replacement number $R$ are reviewed for classic SIR epidemic and endemic models and results with new expressions for $R_{0}$ are obtained for MSEIR and SEIR endemic models with either continuous age or age groups.

Contributions to the mathematical theory of epidemics—II. The problem of endemicity

Under special cases investigated when either immigration or birth is operative in the supply of fresh individuals, as well as in the general case, only one steady state of disease is possible and it has been shown that in all cases, except one, the steady states are stable ones.
