Tests for monotone mean residual life, using randomly censored data.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is useful to categorize failure distributions by the monotonicity properties of the mean residual life function. Hollander and Proschan (1975) derived tests of the null hypothesis that the underlying failure distribution is exponential, versus the alternative that it has a monotone mean residual life function. In this paper, the Hollander-Proschan tests are generalized to accommodate randomly censored data.-from Authors
