13) these residuals will have either an exact or a limiting distribution of an accelerated failure time model. 1 to make inference about X in the threshold model. 12) is in use, we compute Ri as the Cox and Snell (1968) residual. 14) where H0 (t) = Tj t dN• (Tj ) . 15) It is well known (cf. Klein and Moeschberger (2003)) that these residuals behave like a censored sample from a unit exponential. 1 with ψi = Ri − δi . 13) with error distribution E we define the residual by Ri = 1 σˆ ln[Ti ] − µˆ − b∗ Zi , i = 1, .

Now, with I and B( β 0 ), we are able to obtain the covariance matrix of Z( β ), hence we are able to calculate the eigenvalues of the covariance matrix to derive the mean and the variance of the null distribution of the K 2 statistic. Next, we investigate the asymptotic null distribution of K 2 under various conditions. The investigation is conducted by generating extensive numerical examples from a variety of conditions and calculating the eigenvalues of the covariance matrices. For each generated example, the theoretical mean and the variance of the null distribution of the statistic K 2 are calculated from the eigenvalues.

5 years. 28 years. Figure 1 shows the martingale residual plot for this data. The solid line is the LOESS regression line. The line shows that there appears to be a change in the effect of age on outcome occurring at about 40 years of age. While this curve may be more suggestive of two piecewise linear functions of age, clinical interest is in the discretizing of the age covariate. P. -T. 2. Estimation of the threshold parameter Estimation of the threshold parameter, γ , is based on the Cox proportional hazards model.
