In this work, we introduce a standard software CONTENT 1.5 for analysis of dynamical systems. A simple model for childhood infectious diseases is used as an example. The detailed steps to obtain the bifurcation structures of the system are given. These bifurcation structures can be used to explain the observed dynamical transition in measles incidences.
