Although a problem may be written correctly, sometimes the solver fails to find a solution or requires excessive time to find a solution. Initialization strategies are critical in these situations to find a nearby solution that seeds the optimization problem with a starting point that allows convergence'^1^'.

'''Objective:''' Simulate a highly nonlinear system, using initialization strategies to find a suitable approximation for a future parameter estimation exercise. Create a MATLAB or Python script to simulate and display the results. ''Estimated Time: 2 hours''

The spread of HIV in a patient is approximated with balance equations on (H)ealthy, (I)nfected, and (V)irus population counts'^2^'. There are six parameters (kr'_1..6_') in the model that provide the rates of cell death, infection spread, virus replication, and other processes that determine the spread of HIV in the body. The following data is provided from a virus count over the course of 15 years. Note that the virus count information is reported in log scale.

With guess values for parameters (kr'_1..6_'), approximately match the laboratory data for this patient. A subsequent section introduces methods for parameter estimation by minimizing an objective function.
