Global stability properties of a class of renewal epidemic models
We investigate the global dynamics of a general Kermack–McKendrick-type epidemic model formulated in terms of a system of renewal equations. Specifically, we consider a renewal model for which both the force of infection and the infected removal rates are arbitrary functions of the infection age, τ , and use the direct Lyapunov method to establish the global asymptotic stability of the equilibrium solutions. In particular, we show that the basic reproduction number, R0 , represents a sharp...[Show more]
