Global analysis of an SIS model with an infective vector on complex networks. (English) Zbl 1238.92042
Summary: A modified SIS model with an infective vector on complex networks is proposed and analyzed, which incorporates some infectious diseases that are not only transmitted by a vector, but also spread by direct contacts between human beings. We treat direct human contacts as a social network and assume spatially homogeneous mixing between vector and human populations. By mathematical analysis we obtain the basic reproduction number $R_{0}$ and study the effects of various immunization schemes. For the network model we prove that if $R_{0}<1$, the disease-free equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable, otherwise there exists a unique endemic equilibrium such that it is globally attractive. Our theoretical results are confirmed by numerical simulations and suggest a promising way for the control of infectious diseases.
