Reliability and risk : a Bayesian perspective by
Nozer D Singpurwalla(
Book
)
19 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Reliability and Risk provides a comprehensive overview of the mathematical and statistical aspects of risk and reliability analysis, from a Bayesian perspective. This book sets out to change the way in which we think about reliability and survival analysis by casting them in the broader context of decisionmaking." "Reliability and Risk can most profitably be used by practitioners and research workers in reliability and survivability as a source of information, reference and open problems. It can also form the basis of a graduate level course in reliability and risk analysis for students in statistics, biostatistics, engineering (industrial, nuclear, systems), operations research and other mathematically oriented sciences, wherein the instructor could supplement the material with examples and problems."BOOK JACKET

Mathematical reliability : an expository perspective by
Refik Soyer(
Book
)
7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this volume consideration was given to more advanced theoretical approaches and novel applications of reliability to ensure that topics having a futuristic impact were specifically included. Topics like finance, forensics, information, and orthopedics, as well as the more traditional reliability topics were purposefully undertaken to make this collection different from the existing books in reliability. The entries have been categorized into seven parts, each emphasizing a theme that seems poised for the future development of reliability as an academic discipline with relevance. The seven parts are networks and systems; recurrent events; information and design; failure rate function and burnin; software reliability and random environments; reliability in composites and orthopedics, and reliability in finance and forensics. Embedded within the above are some of the other currently active topics such as causality, cascading, exchangeability, expert testimony, hierarchical modeling, optimization and survival analysis. These topics, when linked with utility theory, constitute the science base of risk analysis

Case Studies in Bayesian Statistics by
Constantine Gatsonis(
)
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The past few years have witnessed dramatic advances in computational methods for Bayesian inference. As a result, Bayesian approaches to solving a wide variety of problems in data analysis and decisionmaking have become feasible. The purpose of this volume is to present several detailed examples of applications of Bayesian methods. The emphasis of each article is on the scientific or technological context of the problem being solved, and much background material is provided to complete the description of the analysis. This collection illustrates the ways in which Bayesian methods are permeating statistical practice. Noteworthy in the articles are the construction of explicit and conceptually simple models, the use of information other than the data under analysis, and the representation of uncertainty from various sources in the model. Consequently, many researchers will find this collection an illuminating survey of Bayesian methods in practice, and both lecturers and students will be able to learn a great deal through study of these examples

A new approach to inference from accelerated life tests by
Frank Proschan(
Book
)
5 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A recent paper has proposed a new approach for making inferences from accelerated life tests. Their approach is significantly different from those that have been considered in the past, and is motivated by what is actually done in practice. A priori information which is generally available to the engineer is incorporated under their approach by adopting a bayesian point of view. The usual assumptions about the failure distributions and the acceleration functions, which are appealing from a statistical point of view, have been sacrificed to achieve greater reality. In this paper, we apply this new approach to some real life data arising from an accelerated life test. In the process, we explain our new approach in a manner which makes it easy to understand and apply by the reliability practitioner

Annotated bibliography on some physical models in accelerated life testing and models for fatigue failure by
Nozer D Singpurwalla(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this interim report the author presents an annotated bibliography of some selected papers dealing with the general topic of accelerated life testing. This bibliography is an outcome of a study to determine those physical models which are useful for inferences from accelerated life tests. Consequently, the majority of the contributions here deal with papers whose texts refer to engineering and physical models. Exceptions to this are made whenever the text of a paper has material which could be useful for analyzing the results of an accelerated life test wherein the assumption of a physical model may be appropriate. Also included in this bibliography are contributions dealing with models for fatigue failure, since the mechanisms which cause fatigue failures have nice physical interpretations

On the predictive performance of the BEA quarterly econometric model and a BoxJenkins type ARIMA model by
Gorti V. L Narasimham(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper compares the predictive performance of the BEA quarterly econometric model with that of a parsimonious BoxJenkins type autogressive integrated moving average model for univariate time series analysis. For this purpose, GNP is the variable of interest. This paper complements that by C.R. Nelson (1972) on the predictive performance of the FRBMITPENN model versus BoxJenkins type models, and that by T.H. Naylor, et al. (1972) on the Wharton model versus BoxJenkins type models

Averaging time and maxima for dependent observations by
Richard E Barlow(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For the purposes of evaluating air quality, it is important to know the probability that maximum pollutant concentrations will exceed state standards stated for various averaging times. In the paper, the authors a new approach for analyzing certain time series processes. They show that, under certain conditions, several stochastic processes which could generate a time series for air pollutant data are associated. Association is a strengthening of the concept of positive correlation. The processes that are considered here are the autoregressive, the Markov, and a stationary Gaussian process with a specified autocorrelation function. The extreme value distribution is shown to provide a lower bound on the distribution function of the maxima of averages of observations generated by an associated stochastic process

Bayesian Analyses of Nonhomogeneous Autoregressive Processes by
T. W Anderson(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper considers nonhomogeneous autoregressive processes which are special cases of the vectorvalued autoregressive processes considered by Anderson (1978) for the analysis of panel survey data. The authors point out that, for a nonhomogeneous autoregressive process of order higher than one, the leastsquares estimates cannot be obtained unless repeated measurements are made on the time series. Presented are two Bayesian approaches based on Kalman filter models which alleviate the above difficulty and result in an alternative strategy for the analyses of nonhomogeneous autoregressive processes. In the first approach the notion of exchangeability plays a key role, whereas for the second approach, which results in an adaptive Kalman filter model, an approximation due to Lindley facilitates the necessary computations for inference

Failure rate estimation using random smoothing by
Douglas R Miller(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This note investigates some aspects of the distribution theory of an estimator of the failurerate function. It clarifies and gives a slightly different approach to some asymptotic results of Singpurwalla for the failure rate process from exponential lifetimes. In addition, we extend these results to the case of general lifetimes. This leads us to confidence regions for randomly smoothed versions of the failurerate function, for both finite and large samples
