# Abstract:

Let F and G be two distribution functions. Under certain circumstances there exists a function h0,1 yields 0,1 such that G hF. In that case G and F can be taken to be, respectively, the distribution functions of an object under normal conditions and under conditions causing accelerated aging. Presumably one would have a fairly good idea of F from testing an estimate of h would then provide an estimate of G. It is also possible that h might be determined from theoretical considerations in which case an estimate of F would provide an estimate of G. Finally, it is possible that estimates of h could provide insights into the aging process itself.
