In recent years the analysis of survival time, lifetime, or failure time data has received considerable attention. The methodology applies in medical trials, where survival is of primary interest, and in reliability experiments, where failure time is the duration of interest. We will mostly refer to survival time although, in principle, situations where the time until the occurrence of some event is of interest are considered.
