Bivariate failure rate

Description

Bivariate failure rate λ_2

Usage

lambda2Roy(x, y, theta1, theta2, theta3)

Arguments

x

observation from the first variable

y

observation from the second variable

theta1

paramater θ_1

theta2

paramater θ_2

theta3

paramater θ_3

Details

It is defined as P(X≥q x,Y=y)/P(X≥q x,Y≥q y). For this model, λ_2(x,y)=1-θ_2θ_3^x

Value
