Adaptive Progressive Type-II Censoring and Related Models

Part of the Statistics for Industry and Technology book series (SIT)


The notion of adaptive progressive Type-II censoring is introduced in detail and the relation to some other models is illustrated. The discussion includes, e.g., nonadapative progressive Type-II censoring, the Ng–Kundu–Chan model, and progressive censoring with random removals.
