  • Yali Yang

In a model of tuberculosis with relapse, the basic reproduction number R0 includes new and relapse infections. Lyapunov functions help to prove that the global dynamic is completely determined by R0. Replicated Latin hypercube sampling shows that early diagnosis and treatment are more efficient when relapse cases are considered.
