A population model of infected T-4 cells in aids

  • 27 Accesses


A population model of infected T-4 cell is modeled as a point process using method of phases with special types of time-dependencies. The duration of these phases are themselves independent and exponentially distributed random variables. The analysis leads to an explicit differential equations for the generating functions of the infected T-4 cells from which the first and second order moments are calculated. Graphs are drawn for the expected number of infected T-4 cells. Finally interpretation of results are given. The detection process is explicitly introduced and its characteristics are obtained. Also for different parametric values the stationarity distribution are tabulated.
