About this book

This monograph offers a thorough and updated guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring, an area that has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. Progressive censoring, originally proposed in the 1950s, is an efficient method of handling samples from industrial experiments involving lifetimes of units that have either failed or censored in a progressive fashion during the life test, with many practical applications to reliability and quality.

Key topics and features:

  • Data sets from the literature as well as newly simulated data sets are used to illustrate concepts throughout the text
  • Emphasis on real-life applications to life testing, reliability, and quality control
  • Discussion of parametric and nonparametric inference
  • Coverage of experimental design with optimal progressive censoring

The Art of Progressive Censoring is a valuable reference for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in applied statistics, quality control, life testing, and reliability. With its accessible style and concrete examples, the work may also be used as a textbook in advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate courses on censoring or progressive censoring, as well as a supplementary textbook for a course on ordered data.

Reviews

“This book offers a thorough and updated guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring. … The book has been written in a self-contained manner and, therefore, will be quite suitable either as a text for a graduate topic course, a text for a directed-reading course, or as a handbook on progressive censoring.” (N. G. Gamkrelidze, zbMATH, Vol. 1365.62001, 2017) 

“This gives a clear idea about the importance and growing interest in progressive censoring. … The book, with its encyclopedic coverage of progressive censoring, is an invaluable asset for serious researchers and practitioners.” (S. Panchapakesan, Mathematical Reviews, October, 2015)
