The characteristic equation with s ≥ 0, arises in the analysis of stability of equilibria of some integrodifferential equations which model the spread of infectious diseases. We obtain some results giving conditions on the parameters a and c for which all roots have negative real part, thus implying stability of an equilibrium.
