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… Expand

The log-odd log-logistic Weibull regression model: modelling, estimation, influence diagnostics and residual analysis

- Mathematics
- 2016

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… Expand

Proportional Hazard Regression Model with Bayesian Approach

- Mathematics
- 2016

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… Expand

Approximate MLEs of the parameters of location-scale models under type II censoring

- Mathematics

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… Expand

An EM type estimation procedure for the destructive exponentially weighted Poisson regression cure model under generalized gamma lifetime

- Mathematics

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… Expand

A study of the slope of cox proportional hazard and Weibull models: simulated and real life data approach

- Mathematics
- 2016

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… Expand

The Log-exponentiated-Weibull Regression Models with Cure Rate: Local Influence and Residual Analysis

- Mathematics
- Journal of Data Science
