As the title suggests, this book is devoted to failure rate modelling for reliability analysis and other disciplines that employ the notion of the failure rate or its equivalents. The conditional hazard in risk analysis and the mortality rate in demography are the relevant examples of these equivalent concepts. Although the main focus in the text is on this crucial characteristic, our presentation cannot be restricted to failure rate analysis alone; other important reliability measures are studied as well.
