Permanence and Almost Periodic Solutions to an Epidemic Model with Delay and Feedback Control

Authors: zhouhong li, Chenxi Yang


This paper is concerned with an epidemic model with delay. By using the comparison theorem of the differential equation and constructing a suitable Lyapunov functional, Some sufficient conditions which guarantee the permeance and existence of a unique globally attractive positive almost periodic solution of the model are obtain. Finally, an example is employed to illustrate our result.

Keywords: Feedback Control, delay, Almost periodic solution, permanence, Epidemic model
