We study a fractional differential model of HIV infection of T-cell, in which the T-cell proliferation plays an important role in HIV infection under antiretroviral therapy. An appropriate method is given to ensure that both the equilibria are asymptotically stable for . We calculate the basic reproduction number , the IFE , two IPEs and , and so on, and judge the stability of the equilibrium. In addition, we describe the dynamic behaviors of the fractional HIV model by using the Adams-type predictor-corrector method algorithm. At last, we extend the model to incorporate the term which we consider the loss of virion and a bilinear term during attacking the target cells.
