An SIRS model with differential susceptibility and infectivity on uncorrelated networks.

Abstract

We propose and study a model for sexually transmitted infections on uncorrelated networks, where both differential susceptibility and infectivity are considered. We first establish the spreading threshold, which exists even in the infinite networks. Moreover, it is possible to have backward bifurcation. Then for bounded hard-cutoff networks, the stability… (More)
