Title: Empirical Likelihood Based Detection Procedure for Change Point in Mean Residual Life Functions under random censorship

Abstract: Mean residual life function is an important function in survival analysis which describes the expected remaining lifetime given survival time up to a certain age. In this talk, I will introduce a nonparametric method based on empirical likelihood to test the change point of mean residual life functions of independent random variables. Monte Carlo Simulations under different lifetime settings are carried out to show the power performance. Two real data examples are analyzed to illustrate the testing procedure. 

Refreshments are available at 3:00 PM in SC 313F.
