Properties of stability and Hopf bifurcation for a HIV infection model with time delay. (English) Zbl 1193.34152

Summary: We consider the classical mathematical model with saturation response of the infection rate and time delay. By stability analysis we obtain sufficient conditions for the global stability of the infection-free steady state and the permanence of the infected steady state. Numerical simulations are carried out to explain the mathematical conclusions.
