Mathematical Theory of Reliability by Richard E. Barlow

Book Description

This monograph presents a survey of mathematical models useful in solving reliability problems. It includes a detailed discussion of life distributions corresponding to wearout and their use in determining maintenance policies, and covers important topics such as the theory of increasing (decreasing) failure rate distributions, optimum maintenance policies, and the theory of coherent systems. The emphasis throughout the book is on making minimal assumptions - and only those based on plausible physical considerations - so that the resulting mathematical deductions may be safely made about a large variety of commonly occurring reliability situations. The first part of the book is concerned with component reliability, while the second part covers system reliability, including problems that are as important today as they were in the 1960s. The enduring relevance of the subject of reliability and the continuing demand for a graduate-level book on this topic are the driving forces behind its re-publication.
