Stochastic comparisons for residual lifetimes and Bayesian notions of multivariate ageing. (English) Zbl 0951.62085
For a given vector \((T_1,\dots, T_n)\) of random life times certain concavity conditions on the joint survival function or the joint density function are given which permit a one-dimensional stochastic comparison of the life times of two surviving components under identical history.
