In this paper, the problem of testing exponentiality against used better than aged in convex ordering classes of life distributions is investigated. For this property a nonparametric test is presented based on kernel method. The test is presented for complete and right censored data. Furthermore,...

By assuming that an underlying Gaussian-Log Gaussian (GLG) random field clipped to yield binary spatial data, we propose a new model which provides flexibility in capturing the effects of heavy tail in latent variables. For our analysis, we adopt a Bayesian framework and develop a Markov chain Monte...

The concept of system signature is widely used for comparing of mixed (coherent) systems. In practical situa- tions, it is usually impossible to compare mixed systems. To do this, some partial orders are considered in the literature. In this paper, we define a new concept of stochastic order for comparing...
