Minimal Repair Redundancy for Coherent Systemin its Signatures Representation
Abstract: In this paper we discuss how to maintain the signature representation of a coherent system through a minimal repair redundancy. In a martingale framework we use compensator transforms to identify how the components minimal repairs affect the order statistics in the signature representation.
