  1. A stochastic model of the HIV epidemic and the HIV infection distribution in a homosexual population.

    Article - En anglais

    In this paper we develop a stochastic model for the HIV epidemic in a homosexual population and use the model to characterize the HIV infection distribution and seroconversion distribution.

    Througb computer-generated infection distributions and seroconversion distributions, we assess the effects of various risk factors on these distributions.

    The fitting of some data sets generated by computer suggests that the three-parameter generalized log-logistic distribution should be assumed as the infection distribution for the proposed stochastic model of HIV epidemics.
