Comparison of survival curves between two groups


Various statistical methods for survival analysis in comparing survival curves between two groups, including overall hypothesis tests described in Li et al. (2015), fixed-point tests in Klein et al. (2007), short-term tests, and long-term tests in Logan et al. (2008). Some commonly used descriptive statistics and plots are also included.
