Abstract:
In this article, we study a continuous age-structured HIV infection model.
For the case of the saturation infection rate, the basic reproduction number
$\Re_0$ is shown to be a sharp threshold value for the global dynamics;
that is, the infection-free equilibrium is globally stable if $\Re_0 < 1$,
while a unique infection equilibrium is so if $\Re_0 > 1$.
For the proof, we use Lyapunov functional techniques based on the relative
compactness of the orbit and uniform persistence of the system.
