"This book is aimed at investigators who need to analyze multivariate survival data. It can be used as a textbook for a graduate course in multivariate survival data. It is written from an applied point of view and covers all the essential aspects of applying multivariate survival models. More theoretical evaluations, like asymptotic theory, are also described, but only to the extent useful in applications and for understanding the models.
To read the book, it is useful, but not necessary, to have an understanding of univariate survival data."--BOOK JACKET.
