A Perron–Frobenius type result for integer maps and applications
It is shown that for certain maps, including concave maps, on the d-dimensional lattice of positive integer points, ‘approximate’ eigenvectors can be found. Applications in epidemiology as well as distributed resource allocation are discussed as examples.
