An annotated bibliography of quantitative methodology relating to the AIDS epidemic. (English) Zbl 0955.92502

Summary: This paper provides an annotated bibliography of over \(100\) articles containing quantitative methodology relating to the AIDS epidemic. The majority of the work describes mathematical and statistical models of the growth and extent of the epidemic, and statistical procedures to estimate key components of the disease process. Among these components, attention has focused primarily on estimating the incubation distribution. It is hoped that the bibliography will not only interest those currently active in the field but also encourage other statisticians to become involved in AIDS research efforts. The general area of AIDS research appears to be a rich source of statistical problems of considerable interest and importance.
