Simulation modeling of HIV infection---from individuals to risk groups and entire populations
Bobashev, G. (2017). Simulation modeling of HIV infection---from individuals to risk groups and entire populations. In C. Chan, M. G. Hudgens, & S-C. Chow (Eds.), Quantitative Methods for HIV/AIDS Research (1st ed., pp. 201-229). Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series.
This chapter provides a brief overview of methods used for modeling HIV in human populations. It is not intended to be a comprehensive review of the models (which are numerous) but rather a description of major modeling approaches and illustrations of how each has been applied to HIV research.
