Abstract : The Principal Investigator and the Co-investigator attended four conferences giving papers at two of them. The Principal Investigator organized a Conference on Stochastic Failure Models, Replacement and Maintenance Policies, Accelerated Life Testing. He continued his research on shock models, wear processes, replacement and maintenance policies; revised the paper Life Distribution Properties of Devices Subject to a Levy Wear Process, wrote the paper Pure Jump Damage Processes. He also wrote Conservative and Dissipative Parts of Non-Measure Preserving Weighted Composition Operators. The Co-investigator presented a paper on Approximate Optimal Replacement Policies and Their Stability.
