-Statistics in Medicine
The statistical analysis of lifetime or response time data is a key tool in engineering, medicine, and many other scientific and technological areas. This book provides a unified treatment of the models and statistical methods used to analyze lifetime data.
Equally useful as a reference for individuals interested in the analysis of lifetime data and as a text for advanced students, Statistical Models and Methods for Lifetime Data, Second Edition provides broad coverage of the area without concentrating on any single field of application. Extensive illustrations and examples drawn from engineering and the biomedical sciences provide readers with a clear understanding of key concepts.
New and expanded coverage in this edition includes:
* Observation schemes for lifetime data
* Multiple failure modes
* Counting process-martingale tools
* Both special lifetime data and general optimization software
* Mixture models
* Treatment of interval-censored and truncated data
* Multivariate lifetimes and event history models
* Resampling and simulation methodology

Keywords: Applied Probability & Statistics - Survival Analysis
