Abstract:

In a previous paper, the authors have introduced a class of multivariate lifetimes MIFRA which generalize the univariate lifetimes with increasing failure rate average IFRA. They have also shown that this class satisfies many fundamental properties. In this paper it is shown that other concepts of multivariate IFRA do not satisfy all of these properties. Relationships between MIFRA and these other concepts are given. Finally positive dependence implications with respect to these classes are also discussed. Author
