  • In this paper, we investigate the global asymptotic stability of multi-group SIR and SEIR age-structured models. These models allow the infectiousness and the death rate of susceptible individuals to vary and depend on the susceptibility, with which we can consider the heterogeneity of population. We establish global dynamics and demonstrate that the heterogeneity does not alter the dynamical structure of the basic SIR and SEIR with age-dependent susceptibility. Our results also demonstrate that, for age structured multi-group models considered, the graph-theoretic approach can be successfully applied by choosing an appropriate weighted matrix as well.
