Abstract
The comparison of survival functions is an important topic in many areas of research, for example, in medicine, the comparison of different treatments with respect to survival time of patients with cancer or, in engineering, the comparison of lifetimes of halogen versus fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs. The most common test procedures are nonparametric tests such as the log-rank test or Peto and Peto's generalized Wilcoxon test, which are both particular cases of the tests of the Fleming...
