  • Abstract It has been hundreds of years, since mathematical models were applied to the study of epidemic disease. From the time when AIDS was inspected, a lot of researchers in the related fields including biology, medicine and mathematics, were interested in and tried to deal with this kind of epidemic. Up to now, there have been many reports involving in AIDS; however, most of these reports concerned only the spread of the epidemic disease in the population, and rarely concerned patients’ condition.
       This thesis was based on mechanism for AIDS. By figuring out the cell concentration of healthy T-cell density, infected T-cell density and HIV density, patients could be identified whether they were infected with AIDS. Without taking the medical issue such as the incubation period into deep consideration, the study constructed one AIDS mathematical model without treatment and two mathematical models with treatment.
       Because these mathematical models are written in nonlinear differential equations, it is usually not easy to find the analytical solution. Therefore, we adopted numerical methods to find out the approximating solutions. From the graphs of these approximating solutions, we found that the equilibrium states of mathematical models were asymptotically stable and also discovered some crucial approaches to control AIDS symptoms. For instantce, if the infection coefficient  or the amount of HIV released from an infected T cell could be decreased, then AIDS symptoms would be under control.
