# Suppressing the endemic equilibrium in SIS epidemics: A state dependent approach

@article{Wang2021SuppressingTE, title={Suppressing the endemic equilibrium in SIS epidemics: A state dependent approach}, author={Yuan Wang and Sebin Gracy and Hideaki Ishii and Karl Henrik Johansson}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2021}, volume={abs/2106.00122} }

This paper considers the susceptible-infected-susceptible (SIS) epidemic model with an underlying network structure among subpopulations and focuses on the effect of social distancing to regulate the epidemic level. We demonstrate that if each subpopulation is informed of its infection rate and reduces interactions accordingly, the fraction of the subpopulation infected can remain below half for all time instants. To this end, we first modify the basic SIS model by introducing a state dependent… Expand

Analysis, Estimation, and Validation of Discrete-Time Epidemic Processes

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology
- 2020

This paper presents several different spread models from the literature and explores their relationships to each other; for one of these processes, a sufficient condition is presented for asymptotic stability of the healthy equilibrium and the condition is necessary and sufficient for uniqueness of thehealthy equilibrium.

Epidemiological Models and Lyapunov Functions

- Mathematics

We give a survey of results on global stability for deterministic compartmental epidemi- ological models. Using Lyapunov techniques we revisit a classical result, and give a simple proof. By the same… Expand

Data-Driven Distributed Mitigation Strategies and Analysis of Mutating Epidemic Processes

Two data-driven mitigation strategies that set the healing parameters in a centralized and a distributed manner, respectively, in order to drive the system to the healthy state are presented. Expand

On the Stability of the Endemic Equilibrium of A Discrete-Time Networked Epidemic Model

- Computer Science, Engineering

It is shown that the endemic equilibrium of a networked Susceptible-Infected-Susceptible (SIS) epidemic model with heterogeneous transition rates in a discrete-time manner is asymptotically stable for any nontrivial initial condition. Expand

Optimal, near-optimal, and robust epidemic control

- Biology, Computer Science
- 2020

This work derives the optimal time-limited intervention for reducing peak epidemic prevalence in the standard Susceptible-Infectious-Recovered (SIR) model and shows that alternative, more practical interventions can perform nearly as well as the provably optimal strategy. Expand

Resilient Consensus Against Epidemic Malicious Attacks

- Engineering, Computer Science
- ArXiv
- 2020

This paper addresses novel consensus problems for multi-agent systems operating in a pandemic environment where infectious diseases are spreading by defining sufficient conditions on the network structures for different policies regarding the announced infection levels and the strength of the pandemic.

Sensitivity properties of some nontrivial equilibria are investigated in the context of a decentralized control technique, and an impossibility result is given for a certain type of distributed feedback controller. Expand

Optimal Resource Allocation for Competitive Spreading Processes on Bilayer Networks

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems
- 2018

This work considers a competitive epidemic process in a bilayer network, and develops a framework to find an optimal allocation of control resources to eliminate one of the epidemics, and proposes a method which provably attains the extinction condition when sufficient capital is available. Expand

Sparse Resource Allocation for Linear Network Spread Dynamics

- Computer Science
- IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control
- 2017

This study considers allocating limited distributed control resources among a subset of a network's nodes, to minimize the dominant eigenvalue of a linear dynamical spread process associated with the network. Expand
