Beschreibungen

This book provides a panoramic view of theory and applications of Ageing and Dependence in the use of mathematical methods in reliability and survival analysis. Ageing and dependence are important characteristics in reliability and survival analysis. They affect decisions with regard to maintenance, repair/replacement, price setting, warranties, medical studies, and other areas. Most of the works containing the topics covered here are theoretical in nature. However, this book offers applications, exercises, and examples. It serves as a reference for professors and researchers involved in reliability and survival analysis.
A panoramic view of theory and applications of Ageing and Dependence in the use of mathematical methods in reliability and survival analysis. This book has applications, exercises, and examples, and serves as reference book for professors and researchers.
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. Amari, International Journal of Performability Engineering, Vol. 3, No. 2, April 2007

C.D. Lai obtained Ph.D. in Statistics from the Victoria University of Wellington. He held positions at the University of Auckland and the National Chiao Tung University (Taiwan) prior to coming to Massey in 1979. Professor Lai has published over 90 peer–reviewed papers and coauthored two well-received books. He is one of the two Editors-in-Chief of the Journal of Applied Mathematics and Decision Sciences.

M. Xie obtained his Ph.D. in Quality Technology from Linkoping University in Sweden. He joined the National University of Singapore in 1991 and was awarded the prestigious Lee Kuan Yew research fellowship. Professor Xie has authored numerous papers and several books, and serves as editor or editorial board member in several international journals.
