This book contains 12 contributions on stochastic models in reliability and maintenance. Written by the leading researchers on each topic, each contribution surveys the current status on stochastic models emphasizing mathematical formulation and optimization applications. Each contribution is self-contained and has a thorough bibliography. The topics include renewal processes, semi-Markov processes, Markovian deterioration models, maintenance and replacement models, software reliability models and Monte-Carlo simulation. This book provides researchers, reliability engineers and graduate students with the current status of the field and future developments of the subject.
