This course covers analysis of lifetime data with applications in engineering and biomedical research. Topics may include survival function, hazard function, cumulative hazard function, parametric distributions to model lifetime data, censoring, Kaplan-Meier estimator, testing for survival times for two or more groups, Cox proportional hazards model (both fixed and time dependent covariate), parametric regression models, regression diagnostics, accelerated failure time models, sample size determination, extensive use of R statistical software. Prerequisites: MATH 5305/STATS 5305 or MATH 5312/STATS 5312 or permission of instructor.
