Global Dynamics of an SEIR Model with Infectious Force in Latent and Recovered Period and Standard Incidence Rate

Yanli Ma
Abstract—In this paper, we consider an epidemic model with the infectious force in the latent and recovered period and establish the SEIR epidemic model with standard incidence rate. Then, we find the basic reproduction number R0 which determines whether the disease exists. By using Liapunov function method, we prove that the disease-free equilibrium E0 is globally asymptotically stable and the disease goes away when R0 <1. By Hurwitz criterion, we also prove that E0 is unstable and the unique endemic equilibrium E* is locally asymptotically stable when R0 <1 . It is shown that when disease-induced death rate and elimination rate are zero, E* is globally asymptotically stable and the disease persists. Finally, we give numerical simulation to illustrate the theoretical analysis.

Index Terms—Basic reproductive number, equilibrium, stability, SEIR epidemic model, numerical simulation.
