Chapter 5, “Inference Procedures for Log-Location-Scale Distributions,” is concerned with likelihood-based inference under various censoring schemes for the important case where the logarithm of the lifetime is modeled with a location-scale distribution. The Weibull, extreme value, lognormal, and loglogistic distributions are discussed. In addition, two distributions with an additional parameter, the generalized log-Burr and the generalized log-gamma, are discussed. Chapter 6, “Parametric… 

Topics from this paper

The log-odd log-logistic Weibull regression model: modelling, estimation, influence diagnostics and residual analysis
In applications of survival analysis, the failure rate function may frequently present a unimodal shape. In such cases, the log-normal and log-logistic distributions are used. In this paper, we shall
Proportional Hazard Regression Model with Bayesian Approach
The purpose of survival analysis is to model the underlying distribution of the failure time variable and to assess the dependence of the failure time variable on independent variables. In this
Approximate MLEs of the parameters of location-scale models under type II censoring
Log-location-scale distributions are widely used parametric models that have fundamental importance in both parametric and semiparametric frameworks. The likelihood equations based on a Type II
Analysis of Interval-Censored Data with Weibull Lifetime Distribution
In this work the analysis of interval-censored data, with Weibull distribution as the underlying lifetime distribution has been considered. It is assumed that censoring mechanism is independent and
New Flexible Regression Models Generated by Gamma Random Variables with Censored Data
We propose and study a new log-gamma Weibull regression model. We obtain explicit expressions for the raw and incomplete moments, quantile and generating functions and mean deviations of the
An EM type estimation procedure for the destructive exponentially weighted Poisson regression cure model under generalized gamma lifetime
ABSTRACT In this paper, we assume the number of competing causes to follow an exponentially weighted Poisson distribution. By assuming the initial number of competing causes can undergo destruction
A study of the slope of cox proportional hazard and Weibull models: simulated and real life data approach
Parametric models require that the distribution of survival time is known and the hazard function is completely specified except for the values of the unknown parameters. These include the Weibull
The Log-exponentiated-Weibull Regression Models with Cure Rate: Local Influence and Residual Analysis
In this paper the log-exponentiated-Weibull regression model is modified to allow the possibility that long term survivors are present in the data. The modification leads to a
Analysis of time-to-event data including frailty modeling.
Various methods have been explored by several authors, including the Expectation-Maximisation (EM) algorithm, penalized partial likelihood approach, Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods, Monte Carlo EM approach and different methods using Laplace approximation.
On the Bayesian analysis of the mixture of power function distribution using the complete and the censored sample
The power function distribution is often used to study the electrical component reliability. In this paper, we model a heterogeneous population using the two-component mixture of the power function


Statistical Methods in Reliability
Some of the advances made during the past 25 years in the statistical treatment of reliability problems are reviewed and some where work is needed are suggested.
