    Abstract

    We consider SIS models for the spread of epidemics. In particular we consider the so called nonhomogeneous case, in which the probability of infection and recovery are not uniform but depend on a neighborhood graph which describes the possibility of infection between individuals. In addition it is assumed, that infection, recovery probabilities as well as the interconnection structure may change with time. Using the concept of the joint spectral radius of a family of matrices conditions are provided that guarantee robust extinction of the epidemics.
