Presentation of a fast solution for solving HIV-infection dynamics and chemotherapy optimization based on fuzzy: AVK method

The issue of including the most optimal amount of medicine consumption in the program of illness control program is important in the control of HIV because of its high cost and high risk of side effects (poisoning), so applying a mathematical model and modern technique are necessary in solving optimal control problem for prescribing optimal amount.
