  1. doi request reprint Lifesaving, delayed deaths and cure in mortality modeling
    Maxim 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...
  2. doi request reprint On ordered subpopulations and population mortality at advanced ages
    Maxim 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)...
  3. doi request reprint On the 'rate of aging' in heterogeneous populations
    Maxim 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...
  4. ncbi request reprint Aging: damage accumulation versus increasing mortality rate
    Maxim 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...
