Consider the following partial ordering between randomvariables X1 and X2. The randomvariable X1 is said to be smaller than the random variable X2 in the completion rate sense if the completion rate of X1 at time t, say λ1(t), is larger than or equal to the completion rate of X2, say λ2(t), for any t. … Continue reading "Consider the following partial ordering between randomvariables X 1 and X 2 .
