Abstract:

Multistate structure functions on state spaces which are not necessarily finite are discussed. Integral representations are derived which extend the decomposition of Block and Savits 1982. Bounds for the structure function are obtained and the representation is applied to the Barlow-Wu structure function and to nondecreasing homogeneous functions. Author
