Survival Models

List of recent books on statistical modelling of survival times (lifetimes)
Comments and suggestions are welcome!


Recently I have got the following interesting question by e-mail:

Would you know of any good sources of information (books, papers) covering previous longevity research based on statistical modelling of survival times (lifetimes)?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Well, the answer to this question may be of public interest, therefore I post it here.

What first comes to my mind, are these books and book chapters:

Book chapter "Models of Systems Failure in Aging"
by Gavrilov LA & Gavrilova NS, 2006
In: Handbook of Models for Human Aging
by P Michael Conn (Editor):

Stochastic Ageing and Dependence for Reliability

The classic books and papers on statistical modelling of survival times (lifetimes) published before 1991 can be found at:

This list of classic publications may be also useful for the studies on the history of science of survival models.

Hope it helps,
