Handbook of Survival Analysis
Edited by John P. Klein，Hans C. van Houwelingen，Joseph G. Ibrahim，Thomas H. Scheike
In this volume we present a series of chapters which provide an introduction to the advances in survival analysis techniques in the past thirty years. These chapters can serve four complementary purposes. First, they provide an introduction to various areas in survival analysis for graduates students and other new researchers to this field. Second, they provide a reference to more-established investigators in this area of modern investigations into survival analysis. Third, with a bit of supplementation on counting process theory this volume is useful as a text for a second or advanced course in survival analysis. We have found that the instructor of such a course can pick and choose chapters in areas he/she deems most useful to the students or areas of interest to the instructor. Lastly, these chapters can help practicing statisticians pick the best statistical method to analyze their survival data experiment.
