Fluctuating Role of Parameters in the Analysis of the Continues and Discrete Version of a Susceptible-Incubated-Infected Model


The article concentrates on the role of fluctuating parameters for removable population from the incubated class in a susceptible-incubated-infected model. The discrete analogous of this model is also investigated. Conditions for local asymptotic stability are derived for both the disease free and endemic cases. Numerical simulations are performed to validate the theoretical results.
