The Weibull distribution is a very popular distribution. It is called after Waladdi Weibull, a Swedish physicist. He used it in 1939 to analyze the breaking strength of materials. Since then it has been widely used for modelling phenomena with monotone failure rates. It is not useful for modelling phenomena with non monotone failure rates. The Weibull distribution has been shown to be useful for modelling and analyzing of life time data in medical, biological and engineering sciences. Some… CONTINUE READING
