Comparing Lifetimes of Series and Parallel Systems with Heterogeneous Fréchet Components

Abstract: In this paper, we discuss stochastic comparisons of lifetimes of series and parallel systems with heterogeneous Fréchet components in terms of the usual stochastic order, reversed hazard rate order and likelihood ratio order. The partial results established here extend some well-known results in the literature of Gupta et al. Specifically, first… CONTINUE READING
