Global Stability Analysis of a Metapopulation SIS Epidemic Model
The conjecture of Arino and van den Driessche (2003) that a SIS type model in a mover-stayer epidemic model is globally asymptotically stable is confirmed analytically. If the basic reproduction number , then the disease-free equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable. If , then there exists a unique endemic equilibrium that is globally asymptotically stable on the nonnegative orthant minus the stable manifold of the disease-free equilibrium.
