The Model of Durability, Aging and Degradation in Medicine, Biology, and Technique


In this paper we use some ideas for analysis of reliability of technical systems to propose similar tools for modeling and investigation of the problem of biological objects longevity, aging, and degradation. The main characteristic for biological objects is their survival function. We focus on evaluation of this function. We deal with the model of hierarchical structure, which is described in the framework of a multi-dimensional Markov process with specific transition intensities.
