Stochastic Comparisons of Heterogeneous Samples with Homogeneous Exponential Samples
Authors: Nitin Gupta, Rakesh Kumar Bajaj
Abstract:In the present communication, stochastic comparison of a series (parallel) system having heterogeneous components with random lifetimes and series (parallel) system having homogeneous exponential components with random lifetimes has been studied. Further, conditions under which such a comparison is possible has been established.
