Multivariate Extensions of Univariate Life Distributions
A general approach for the development of multivariate survival models, based on a set of given marginal survivals, is presented. Preservation of IFR and IFRA properties and the nature of dependence among the variables are examined, and a recursive relation is suggested to obtain the resultant density function. In particular, an absolutely continuous Weibull distribution is derived and a few of its properties are studied.
