reviews

The methods are available in the R-package timereg developed by the authors, which is applied throughout the book with worked examples for the data sets. Emphasis is less on significance testing and more on estimation Model selection, verification, usage in establishing prognostic indices and the importance of confidence intervals are discussed. Appropriate models will posit curved nonmonotonic hazard functions. There are exercises at the end of each chapter. He is the editor of the Scandinavian Journal of Statistics and associate editor of several other journals. The readers who are interested in further research in these areas will find the detailed derivations of mathematical results helpful.

The book covers the use of residuals and resampling techniques to assess the fit of the models and also points out how the suggested models can be utilised for clustered survival data. There are exercises at the end of each chapter. In survival analysis there has long been a need for models that goes beyond the Cox model as the proportional hazards assumption often fails in practice. The model utilizes failure time data at accelerated conditions to estimate the reliabilitymeasures at normal operating conditions. This gives the reader a unique chance of obtaining hands-on experience.

An important contribution that stimulated the entire field was the counting process formulation. There is also more emphasis on model checking than in most books. The applied side of the book with many worked examples accompanied with R-code shows in detail how one can analyse real data and at the same time gives a deeper understanding of the underlying theory. One model that receives special attention is Aalen's additive hazards model that is particularly well suited for dealing with time-varying effects. The authors demonstrate the practically important aspect of how to do hypothesis testing of time-varying effects making backwards model selection strategies possible for the flexible models considered.

You can help correct errors and omissions. The E-mail message field is required. We propose two estimators of the cumulative regression function. The methods are available in the R-package timereg developed by the authors, which is applied throughout the book with worked examples for the data sets. The book is primarily aimed at the biostatistical community. The inspiration and influence of Andersen et al.

This book is well suited for statistical consultants as well as for those who would like to see more about the theoretical justification of the suggested procedures. You can help adding them by using. The coverage of both multiplicative and, especially, additive models with time-varying covariates is well beyond that found in other books.

The applied side of the book with many worked examples accompanied with R-code shows in detail how one can analyse real data and at the same time gives a deeper understanding of the underlying theory. A semi-parametric additive regression model for longitudinal data. It should be a useful reference to both applied as well as theoretical bio-statisticians. An important contribution that stimulated the entire field was the counting process formulation. The methods are available in the R-package timereg developed by the authors, which is applied throughout the book with worked examples for the data sets.

Secular changes in anthropometric data in cystic fibrosis patients. This book is an important resource for anyone with an interest in survival or event history analysis. A non-parametric dynamic additive regression model for longitudinal data. The rich exercises at the end of each chapter make this book an excellent choice as a textbook for an advanced survival analysis course. It is also recommended to theoretically sound data analysts interested in dynamic and semiparametric survival models beyond the class of multiplicative models.
