Conditions for Permanence and Ergodicity of Certain SIR Epidemic Models
In this paper, we study sufficient conditions for the permanence and ergodicity of a stochastic susceptible-infected-recovered (SIR) epidemic model with Beddington-DeAngelis incidence rate in both of non-degenerate and degenerate cases. The conditions obtained in fact are close to the necessary one. We also characterize the support of the invariant probability measure and prove the convergence in total variation norm of the transition probability to the invariant measure. Some of numerical examples are given to illustrate our results.
