- Lifesaving, delayed deaths and cure in mortality modelingMaxim Finkelstein

Department of Mathematical Statistics, University of the Free State, South Africa*Theor Popul Biol*83:15-9. 2013..The derived lifetime distribution and the corresponding mortality rate can be used for a more flexible statistical analysis of mortality data... - On ordered subpopulations and population mortality at advanced agesMaxim Finkelstein

Department of Mathematical Statistics, University of the Free State, South Africa*Theor Popul Biol*81:292-9. 2012..These examples are based on vitality models when an organism's initial vitality (resource) is 'consumed' in the course of life in accordance with a simple stochastic process (e.g., the Wiener process with drift or the gamma process)... - On the 'rate of aging' in heterogeneous populationsMaxim Finkelstein

Department of Mathematical Statistics, University of the Free State, South Africa*Math Biosci*232:20-3. 2011..We show that the rate of aging in this case is a function of age and that it increases in (calendar) time when the baseline mortality rate decreases... - Aging: damage accumulation versus increasing mortality rateMaxim Finkelstein

Department of Mathematical Statistics, University of Free State, PO Box 339, 9300 Bloemfontein, South Africa*Math Biosci*207:104-12. 2007..Using this function, the initial lifetime random variable with ultimately decreasing mortality rate is 'weighted' to result in a new random variable, which is already characterized by the increasing mortality rate...
