Global stability of equilibria in a tick-borne disease model

1. Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Alabama in Huntsville, Huntsville, AL 35899

In this short note we establish global stability results for a four-dimensional nonlinear system that was developed in modeling a tick-borne disease by H.D. Gaff and L.J. Gross (Bull. Math. Biol., 69 (2007), 265--288) where local stability results were obtained. These results provide the parameter ranges for controlling long-term population and disease dynamics.
