Stochastic Ageing and Dependence for Reliability
Ageing and dependence are two important characteristics in reliability and survival analysis, and they affect significantly the decision people make with regard to maintenance, repair/replacement, price setting, warranties, medical studies, and other areas. There are many papers published at different technical levels. This book aims at providing a state-of-the-art review of the subject so the interested readers may have a panoramic view of the theory and applications of the two areas.
This book serves as reference book for professors and researchers involved in reliability and survival analysis. Students with basic probability and statistics knowledge interested in applications will also find the book useful.
From the reviews:
"This book is an important addition to several well-written books on reliability theory and concepts. The book fulfills the authors aim in providing a comprehensive treatment of both ageing and dependence concepts, with emphasis on reliability and survival analysis....Overall, I recommend this book to all serious-minded researchers, practitioners, teachers, and graduate students who would like to have the most up-to-date information available on the subject of stochastic ageing and dependencies in reliability. It also serves as reference book on reliability and survival analysis and is a good addition to one's statistical or reliability library." Suprasad V.
