Summary 
This important book presents developments in a remarkable field of inquiry in statistical/probability theory  the stressstrength model. Many papers in the field include the enigmatic "words" P(X<Y)  or something similar  in the title. This reflects the longestablished concept of ordering of distributions. The basic impetus for the study carried out by the authors of this book is the general concept of stressstrength as an interpretation of the P(X<Y) relationships, which leads to applications in reliability engineering, economics and modern medicine. The StressStrength Model and Its Generalizations collects and digests theoretical and practical results on the theory and applications of the stressstrength relationships in industrial and economic systems  results that have been scattered in the literature during the last 40odd years  and augments and presents them for the first time in a unified manner suitable for practitioners as well as probabilists and theoretical and applied statisticians
