Titel:
Dependence modeling for recurrent event times subject to right-censoring with D-vine copulas 
Abstract:
In many time-to-event studies, the event of interest is recurrent. Here, the data for each sample unit corresponds to a series of gap times between the subsequent events. Given a limited follow-up period, the last gap time might be right-censored. In contrast to classical analysis, gap times and censoring times cannot be assumed independent, i.e. the sequential nature of the data induces dependent censoring. Also, the recurrences typically vary between sample units leading to unbalanced dat...    »
