报告摘要:The lifetime of a coherent system of n components with identical exponential lifetimes is considered. We derive its density function when the joint distribution of these n components is represented by the Frank copulas. Then the likelihood function of the dependence parameter in the copulas and the rate parameter of the component lifetime based on a random sample of m system lifetimes is constructed. Unfortunately the likelihood is an unbounded function of the dependence parameter and maximum likelihood estimator does not exist. Therefore we analyze the data via Bayesian inference with given prior distributions of the parameters. The posterior distribution of the unknown parameters is obtained by the Metropolis-Hastings-within-Gibbs algorithm. The purposed method will then be illustrated by a simulated example.
