Abstract:

Comparisons are obtained between a linear combination of order statistics from a distribution F and a corresponding linear combination from a distribution G where G-1F is a convex, and b starshaped. The results have applications in life testing where the underlying distribution has monotone failure rate or monotone failure rate on the average.
