Abstract : This is a final report which summarizes the research conducted on a large class of topics motivated by reliability and life testing problems. The topics covered include, in alphabetical order, accelerated life tests, Bayesian bioassay, failure rate estimation, goodness of fit testing, Kalman filtering, life testing, quantile estimation, reliability growth monitoring, software reliability, sequential life testing, simulation of Gaussian processed, and time series analysis of reliability data. Most of the work undertaken has appeared in print as journal articles, and this is referenced. The other work is currently under review for various professional journals.
