Beschreibungen

This book offers a thorough and updated guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring, an area that has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade. The theory has developed quite nicely in some special cases having practical applications to reliability and quality.
The Art of Progressive Censoring is a valuable reference for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in applied statistics, quality control, life testing, and reliability. With its accessible style and concrete examples, the work may also be used as a textbook in an advanced undergraduate or a beginning graduate course on censoring or progressive censoring, as well as a supplementary textbook for a course on ordered data.
This is an up-to-date guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring. Key topics include the foundations of progressive censoring; properties of progressively censored samples; and newly simulated data sets illustrating concepts throughout the text.
This book offers a thorough and updated guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring, an area that has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade. Progressive censoring, originally proposed in the1950s, is an efficient method of handling samples arising from industrial experiments involving lifetimes of machines or units that have to be terminated early due to a variety of circumstances. In recent years, the theory has developed quite nicely in some special cases having practical applications to reliability and quality.
Key topics and features:
* Foundations of progressive censoring are first introduced, followed by a discussion of the various properties of progressively censored samples
* Data sets taken from the literature and newly simulated data sets are used to illustrate concepts throughout the text
* Emphasis on real-life applications to life testing, reliability, and quality control
* Numerous examples and illustrations demonstrate the benefits of progressive censoring
* Discussion of parametric and nonparametric inference
* Coverage of experimental design with optimal progressive censoring

This monograph offers a thorough and updated guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring, an area that has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. Progressive censoring, originally proposed in the 1950s, is an efficient method of handling samples from industrial experiments involving lifetimes of units that have either failed or censored in a progressive fashion during the life test, with many practical applications to reliability and quality.Key topics and features:Data sets from the literature as well as newly simulated data sets are used to illustrate concepts throughout the textEmphasis on real-life applications to life testing, reliability, and quality controlDiscussion of parametric and nonparametric inferenceCoverage of experimental design with optimal progressive censoringThe Art of Progressive Censoring is a valuable reference for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in applied statistics, quality control, life testing, and reliability.
