By William Q. Meeker (auth.), M.S. Nikulin, Nikolaos Limnios, N. Balakrishnan, Waltraud Kahle, Catherine Huber-Carol (eds.)

This volume—dedicated to William Q. Meeker at the get together of his 60th birthday—is a suite of invited chapters overlaying fresh advances in sped up lifestyles trying out and degradation versions. The e-book covers a variety of purposes to parts akin to reliability, quality controls, the overall healthiness sciences, economics, and finance.

Specific themes coated include:

* speeded up checking out and inference

* Step-stress checking out and inference

* Nonparametric inference

* version validity in speeded up testing

* the purpose approach approach

* Bootstrap tools in degradation analysis

* precise inferential tools in reliability

* Dynamic perturbed systems

* Degradation types in statistics

Advances in Degradation Modeling is a wonderful reference for researchers and practitioners in utilized chance and statistics, business facts, the well-being sciences, quality controls, economics, and finance.

Martz and Waller [28] provided an early description of the use of Bayesian methods in reliability applications. The applications were, however, limited because of limitations in the technology (both statistical and computing power). Over the past 25 years, however, there has been an explosion in interest and application of Bayesian methods 1 Trends in the Statistical Assessment of Reliability 13 in a wide range of areas of application. This enthusiasm has been driven by important advances in methods for implementing the Bayesian paradigm (especially MCMC methods) and important advances in computer hardware capabilities.
