TL;DR: Alho and Spencer as discussed by the authors published a book on statistical and mathematical demography, focusing on mature population models, the particular focus of the new author (see, e.g., Caswell 2000).
Abstract: Here are two books on a topic new to Technometrics: statistical and mathematical demography. The first author of Applied Mathematical Demography wrote the first two editions of this book alone. The second edition was published in 1985. Professor Keyfritz noted in the Preface (p. vii) that at age 90 he had no interest in doing another edition; however, the publisher encouraged him to find a coauthor. The result is an additional focus for the book in the world of biology that makes it much more relevant for the sciences. The book is now part of the publisher’s series on Statistics for Biology and Health. Much of it, of course, focuses on the many aspects of human populations. The new material focuses on mature population models, the particular focus of the new author (see, e.g., Caswell 2000). As one might expect from a book that was originally written in the 1970s, it does not include a lot of information on statistical computing. The new book by Alho and Spencer is focused on putting a better emphasis on statistics in the discipline of demography (Preface, p. vii). It is part of the publisher’s Series in Statistics. The authors are both statisticians, so the focus is on statistics as used for demographic problems. The authors are targeting human applications, so their perspective on science does not extend any further than epidemiology. The book actually strikes a good balance between statistical tools and demographic applications. The authors use the first two chapters to teach statisticians about the concepts of demography. The next four chapters are very similar to the statistics content found in introductory books on survival analysis, such as the recent book by Kleinbaum and Klein (2005), reported by Ziegel (2006). The next three chapters are focused on various aspects of forecasting demographic rates. The book concludes with chapters focusing on three areas of applications: errors in census numbers, financial applications, and small-area estimates.
TL;DR: In this article , the authors compared NHPP and α-series to obtain a better process for using monotone trend data and prediction, meanwhile, the other studies in this field focused on comparing methods of estimation parameters of NHPP.
Abstract: This study aims to compare the stochastic process model designed as a nonhomogeneous Poisson process and α-series process, to obtain a better process for using monotonous trend data. The α-series process is a stochastic process with a monotone trend, while the NHPP is a general process of the ordinary Poisson process and it is used as a model for a series of events that occur randomly over a variable period of time. Data on the daily fault time of machines in Bahrri Thermal Station in Sudan was analyzed during the interval from first January 2021, to July 31, 2021, to acquire the best stochastic process model used to analyze monotone trend data. The results revealed that the NHPP model could be the most suitable process model for the description of the daily fault time of machines in Bahrri Thermal Station according to lowest MSE, RMSE, Bias, MPE, and highest. The current study concluded through the NHPP the fault time of machines and repair rate occurs in an inconsistent way. The further value of this study is that it compared NHPP and α-series to obtain a better process for using monotone trend data and prediction, meanwhile, the other studies in this field focused on comparing methods of estimation parameters of NHPP and α-series process. The distinctive scientific addition of this study stems from displaying the precision of the NHPP better than the α-series process in the case of monotone trend data.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present UMVUEs for R in different cases i.e. for different distributions of X and Y, some of them are already existing and some are original.
Abstract: In reliability theory, one of the main problems is estimating parameter R = PfX < Yg. In this paper we shall present UMVUEs forR in different cases i.e. for different distributions of X and Y . Some of them are already existing and some are original.
