    • Estimation of distributions with the new better than used in expectation property 

      Lorenzo, Edgardo; Malla, Ganesh B.; Mukerjee, Hari (Elsevier, 2013-05)
      A lifetime X with survival function S, mean residual life function (MRL) M, and finite mean μ is said to be new better than used in expectation (NBUE) if M(t)≤μ for all t≥0. We propose a new estimator for S, based on a ...
    • A new test for new better than used in expectation lifetimes 

      Lorenzo, Edgardo; Malla, Ganesh B.; Mukerjee, Hari (Taylor & Francis Group, 2015)
      The mean residual life of a non negative random variable X with a finite mean is defined by M(t) = E[X - t | X > t] for t >= 0. A popular nonparametric model of aging is new better than used in expectation (NBUE), when ...
