It is not well understood why the transmission of HIV may have a small probability of occurrence despite frequent high risk exposures or ongoing contact between members of a discordant couple. We explore the possible contributions made by distributions of system parameters beginning with the standard three-component differential equation model for the growth of an HIV virion population in an infected host in the absence of drug therapy. The overall dynamical behavior of the model is determined… CONTINUE READING
