title = "A system-theoretic approach for epidemic networks with time-varying population",

abstract = "In this paper, a modern system-theoretic approach is applied to analyze the dynamics of epidemic networks with time-varying population. Specifically, cooperative system theory, nonnegative matrix theory and large-scale system theory are jointly invoked to study the global asymptotic stability of an equilibrium of interest. The obtained results may provide biologically- meaningful measures for how to control the disease and explain why the disease fades out in the population. An explicit estimate is given to describe how the recovery rate affects the epidemic level.",
