Several relations involving closed walks and closed cycles in a weighted digraph are established. These relations are used to derive new expressions for target reproduction numbers for controlling the spectral radius of nonnegative matrices. The results are illustrated by an application to infectious disease control. (C) 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
