Publisher Synopsis

Unlike previous books on this topic, this book has a special focus on correlated frailty models for bivariate survival data. ... A strength of the book is the wide variety of real datasets used to illustrate models and methods. ...This book will be a very useful reference for researchers in the area. The concise summaries of relevant literature that appear at intervals throughout the text are particularly valuable in this regard. ... I would recommend this book to specialists for the breadth of its coverage of the literature and to other readers seeking to sample the flavor of ongoing methodological research in frailty models.-David Oakes, Biometrics, June 2012There are very few books that focus on frailty models, with the most recent one authored by Duchateau and Janssen. The present book goes beyond its predecessors by focusing not only on univariate models but also on extensions to multivariate modelling where event times are clustered. ... The main contribution of the book is that it brings together the available methodology of frailty modelling in a single monograph. The presentation is quite clear and easily understood by both specialists and non-specialists. The non-technical approach makes the reader comprehend the material and at the same time understand the capabilities of the methods and models discussed. The inclusion of several examples makes the book much more attractive than its competitors. In conclusion, the book provides a comprehensive overview of frailty models and it is well written and easy to read and understand. It serves nicely the purpose for which it was written, namely to introduce and attract attention to various issues associated with the frailty models. The book is well suited primarily for bioscience practitioners but also for students, professionals, and researchers.-Alex Karagrigoriou, Journal of Applied Statistics, 2011In my opinion, this book is a comprehensive, authoritative reference on the use of frailty models in survival analysis. The author has identified the key issues from theoretical and practical points of view and has provided numerous references and applications. The use of the data sets was effective in illustrating the concepts. I recommend this book for anyone who would like to become familiar with the key principles and issues with the use of frailty models in survival analysis-William Mietlowski, Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics, Vol. 21, 2011This book gives a detailed introduction to frailty models and their applications primarily in biomedical and epidemiological fields. The models are developed with real life data. ... This book may serve as a textbook for a Master's level (or early Ph.D.) course on frailty models. It also may serve as a good reference book for a specialist in survival analysis.-Olga A. Korosteleva, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011h Read more...
