Determination of time to attain the Threshold Level using Multisource of HIV Transmission –Shock Model Approach

Uma K P


The important characteristic of the threshold for a person is the time to attain the break down point. The assumptions made are somewhat artificial, but are made because of lack of detailed real-world information. In this paper, a person affected having three sources of independent thresholds is considered and the mean and variance of the time to cross the threshold are obtained using the shock model and cumulative damage process. The analytical results are numerically illustrated by assuming specific distributions.
