Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The aim of this short paper is to improve a result recently given by Lu et al. on the global asymptotic stability of the eradication solution of the PVS applied to diseases with vertical transmission, by demonstrating that the condition for local stability guarantees also the global stability.
