Extinction and stationary distribution of a stochastic SIRS epidemic model with non-linear incidence

Aadil Lahrouz and Lahcen Omari

Statistics & Probability Letters, 2013, vol. 83, issue 4, 960-968

Abstract: The present paper studies a stochastic SIRS epidemic model with general incidence rate in a population of varying size. Sufficient conditions for the extinction and the existence of a unique stationary distribution are obtained. The analytical results are illustrated by computer simulations.
