This equation is a particular case of a depressed quartic equation and it can be solved by the Ferrari method, hence reducing it to a depressed cubic equation, and then use Cardano's formulas.
The stability of the endemic equilibrium [E.sub.1] is difficult to prove analytically, because it involves a quartic equation which depend on the variables [I.sub.m] and [I.sub.f].
Hence, from equation (1) it is soon seen that x satisfies the quartic equation
which is a quartic equation in general [11] and its form depends on the medium bidyadic [??].
According to the solution of a quartic equation in [21], we can obtain the following solutions:
The solution, in the fifth command, of those four simultaneous and non-linear equations yields results in four sets corresponding to the roots of a quartic equation. Three of these sets are directly discarded because they contain negative or complex values of pressures; the acceptable solution is displayed in the last line.
Combining Equations (4) and (5) and simplifying, we have an explicit quartic equation in terms of [T.sub.2]:
