Abstract:

Properties are developed for the failure rate function and residual mixing probabilities resulting from a mixture of distributions. After a detailed investigation of these properties for purely exponential mixtures, two more general mixtures are considered. Emphasis is placed on relating the current failure rate in the mixed population to the populations residual composition. The results have potential application in determining an appropriate period of burn in. Author
