Abstract : The concept of hazard rate function is extended to include multiple censoring and the vector parameter situation. Some fundamental moment relations are extablished between these extended hazard rate functions and the score functions. These moment relations are then applied to obtain the exact Fisher information and the locally most powerful rank test for multiple censored samples. (Author)
