Geometric Stability Switch Criteria in HIV-1 Infection Delay Model

  • C. MonicaEmail author
  • M. Pitchaimani


In this article, a new method for analyzing the stability of a steady state of a delay differential equation is introduced. We determine whether or not varying the delay length can change the stability characteristics of a steady state, treating the length of the time delay as a bifurcation parameter.
