Nonparametric Bayesian Survival Analysis using Mixtures of Weibull Distributions

  title={Nonparametric Bayesian Survival Analysis using Mixtures of Weibull Distributions},
  author={Athanasios Kottas}
Bayesian nonparametric methods have been applied to survival analysis problems since the emergence of the area of Bayesian nonparametrics. However, the use of the flexible class of Dirichlet process mixture models has been rather limited in this context. This is, arguably, to a large extent, due to the standard way of fitting such models that precludes full posterior inference for many functionals of interest in survival analysis applications. To overcome this difficulty, we provide a… CONTINUE READING
