Stability of the endemic equilibrium in epidemic models with subpopulations. (English) Zbl 0582.92024
The authors study some epidemic models in the case when the population is divided into subpopulations. The main problems that are considered are to identify thresholds and to prove that beyond these there is a unique endemic equilibrium and finally to find conditions for when the equilibrium is locally stable. For the existence of equilibria the authors use fixed-point theorems and the problem of stability is solved with the aid of linearization and Fourier analysis. One of the models considered is a system of ordinary differential equations and includes immunization and the second one is a system of integrodifferential equations and includes class-age infectivity. The authors also review earlier work on these problems.
