In response to new developments in the field, practical teaching experience, and readers' suggestions, the authors of the warmly received Reliablity Evaluation of Engineering Systems have updated and extended the work-providing extended coverage of fault trees and a more complete examination of probability distribution, among other things-without disturbing the original's concept, structure, or style.


Updates the first edition co-published in 1983 by Plenum and Pitman, maintaining the structure which introduces and applies only one new concept or technique at a time, among them: binomial distribution, network modeling, probability distributions, Markov chains, frequency and duration techniques, Monte Carlo simulation. Includes many appendices and a respectable bibliography (although it does not seem to have been updated). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
