Article Computing waiting time probabilities related to (k1, k2, ..., kl) pattern(Statistical Papers, 2023-11-26) Chadjiconstantinidis, Stathis; Eryılmaz, SerkanShow more For a sequence of multi-state trials with l possible outcomes denoted by f1; 2; :::; lg, let E be the event that at least k1 consecutive 1s followed by at least k2 consecutive 2s,..., followed by at least kl consecutive ls. Denote by Tr the number of trials for the rth occurrence of the event E in a sequence of multi-state trials. This paper studies the distribution of the waiting time random variable Tr when the sequence consists of independent and identically distributed multi-state trials. In particular, distributional properties of Tr are examined via matrix-geometric distributions.Show more Article On 𝜹-shock model with a change point in intershock time distribution(Statistics & Probability Letters, 2024-06-25) Chadjiconstantinidis, Stathis; Eryılmaz, SerkanShow more In this paper, we study the reliability of a system that works under 𝛿-shock model. That is, the system failure occurs when the time between two successive shocks is less than a given thresh old 𝛿. In a traditional setup of the 𝛿 shock model, the intershock times are assumed to have the same distribution. In the present setup, a change occurs in the distribution of the intershock times due to an environmental effect. Thus, the distribution of the intershock times changes after a random number of shocks. The reliability of the system is studied under this change point setup.Show more Article Reliability of a mixed 𝜹-shock model with a random change point in shock magnitude distribution and an optimal replacement policy(Reliability Engineering and System Safety, 2023-04) Chadjiconstantinidis, Stathis; Eryılmaz, SerkanShow more A mixed 𝛿-shock model when there is a change in the distribution of the magnitudes of shocks is defined and studied. Such a model which is a combination of the 𝛿-shock model and the extreme shock model with a random change point (studied by Eryilmaz and Kan, 2019), is useful in practice since a sudden change in environmental conditions may cause a larger shock. In particular, the reliability and the mean time to failure of the system are evaluated by assuming that the random change point has a discrete phase-type distribution. Analytical results for eval-uating the reliability function of the system for several joint distributions of the interarrival times and the magnitudes of shocks, are also given. The optimal replacement policy that is based on a control limit is also proposed when the number of shocks until the change point follows geometric distribution. The results are illustrated by numerical examples.Show more
