This project willlook at developing new statistical models for survival analysis that exploit the analytical and numerical properties of an overlooked key function: the cumulative hazard function. These analytical properties are very powerful and well understood from the convex analysis point of view but, perhaps surprisingly, they have not been so far exploited for statistical modelling so this project this comprises a very promising new to survival data analysis. The project will look at both methodological and computational aspects as well as both univariate and regression modelling. The methodologies developed can be applied to both Biomedica land Engineering Reliability data. (AU)
