A discussion of the basic reliability concepts and models, Reliability Models for Engineers and Scientists demystifies modern mathematical reliability models. Requiring very little mathematical background on the reader's part, this concise book introduces the models by focusing on their physical meaning and the supporting data; it then goes on to p
