Approximating network reliability estimates using linear and quadratic unreliability of minimal cuts

Tongdan Jin, David W. Coit
2003 Reliability Engineering & System Safety  
Simulations and numerical examples show that the new model generally outperforms Esary-Proschan and Edge-Packing bounds, especially for high reliability systems. q  ...  Given component test data, the new model provides tight moment bounds for the network reliability estimate.  ...  For two-terminal reliability, the ESP bounds can be viewed as a graph transformation method. The graph for the upper bound is a parallel combination of minpaths.  ...

Review and comparison of system reliability optimization algorithms considering reliability estimation uncertainty

David W. Coit, Tongdan Jin, Hatice Tekiner
2009 2009 8th International Conference on Reliability, Maintainability and Safety  
One approach is defining a lower percentile of system reliability distribution and using this lower-bound limit as the objective function to be maximized.  ...  Finally, we will review a new approach where the objective function is to minimize the coefficient of variation of the system reliability estimate with respect to a minimum system reliability constraint  ...  Coit and Smith (1998) define a lower percentile of the system reliability distribution or failure time distribution, and use this lower-bound limit as the objective function for reliability maximization  ...

Approximate Recall Confidence Intervals [article]

William Webber
2012 arXiv   pre-print
In this article, we examine several methods for estimating two-tailed recall confidence intervals.  ...  Where document sets are too large for exhaustive relevance assessment, recall can be estimated by assessing a random sample of documents; but an indication of the reliability of this estimate is also required  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The author thanks Doug Oard, Dave Lewis, and Eric Slud for their perceptive suggestions; and Mossaab Bagdouri for observing the anomalous behaviour of the most-conservative prior for sample  ...
