ABSTRACT: Mathematical modeling of the spread of epidemics is one of the main problems in mathematical biology. In this paper, we will consider dynamical systems describing epidemics models, examine the stability of solution to the system in the neighborhood of equilibrium points, and construct phase portraits for its special cases with the help of PhaPl web application.
