We have used the 2-adaptive fuzzy model having the two fuzzy models, fuzzy matrices model and BAMs viz. model to analyze the views of public about HIV/ AIDS disease, patient and the awareness program. This book has five chapters and 6 appendices. The first chapter just recalls the definition of four fuzzy models used in this book and gives illustration of some of them. Chapter two introduces the new n-adaptive fuzzy models. Chapter three uses for the first time 2 adaptive fuzzy models to study psychological and sociological problems about HIV/AIDS. Chapter four gives an outline of the interviews. Chapter five gives the suggestions and conclusion based on our study. Of the 6 appendices four of them are C-program made to make the working of the fuzzy model simple.

People living with HIV/AIDS have always been victims of the most extreme forms of social discrimination. They are stereotyped and stigmatized, and are seen as people outside the 'general population.' In this book we use mathematical tools to attempt an understanding of public awareness and attitude towards people living with HIV/AIDS. Here for the first time, a new model called the n-adaptive fuzzy model has been introduced. This model has the capacity to analyze the same problem in different ways thereby arriving at various solutions that mirror multiple perspectives.

In this chapter for the first time we introduce the new class of n-adaptive fuzzy models (n a positive integer and n ≥ 2) and illustrate it. These n-adaptive fuzzy models can analyze a problem using different models so one can get in one case the hidden pattern, in one case the maximum time period in some case output state vector for a given input vector and so on. So this new model has the capacity to analyze the problem in different angles, which can give multiple suggestions and solutions about the problem. This chapter has two sections. Section one defines the new model gives illustrations and section two defines some special n-adaptive models and proposes some problems.
