Analysis of the binge drinking models with demographics and nonlinear infectivity on networks
Keywords:Binge drinking; Demographics; Stability; Nonlinear infectivity; Weight networks
Abstract:
      Two new binge drinking models incorporating demographics on different weighted networks are investigated. First, The dynamics of the drinking model with the linear infectivity $\varphi(k)=k$ on the unweighted network is investigated. The basic reproduction number $R_0$ and the uniqueness and stability of equilibria are derived. Second, the model with the nonlinear infectivity $\varphi(k)=k^a(0
