Models of the spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection must deal with substantial heterogeneity in the populations at risk. The virus is spread by behaviors that are far from uniformly distributed in the population, and substantial variations in biological aspects of susceptibility and infectivity are also likely. How adequately a model represents this heterogeneity will substantiall......

Women's health and men's health differ in a variety of ways--women live longer on average, for example, but tend to be sicker as well. Whereas some of these distinctions are based solely on gender, there is growing awareness that the environment and related factors may play a role in creating health status differences between men and women.

The military uses models to simulate how well a weapon system or sensor will perform. For such simulations to produce useful information, their results must correspond closely to those of the system's actual performance. Determining whether a model does so is called validation. This report describes a two-phased approach to model validation.Phase I validates component model elements using scientif......
