The project will focus on extending of the classical Marshall-Olkin model assuming dependence between the random variables involved. Bivariate probability and aging properties of the model will be studied, together with features related to evolution of dependence along time using typical reliability, copula theory and stochastic comparison techniques. Possible applications of the extended model to systemic risk and contagion modelling in finance are suggested. (AU)
