K. G. RAMAMURTHY, Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore
SUMMARY. In this paper we derive expressions for the reliability functions of consecutive-k-out-of-n systems for i.i.d. case. Application of these results for the computation of indices of structural importance of components is also considered.
AMS (1991) subject classification. 62N05
