A brief literature survey on the estimation of the univariate and bivariate mean
residual life function is presented. With this survey as a background, some new sta-
tistical inference problems involving the bivariate mean residual lifetime function are
considered. Some asymptotic theory of the procedure is developed, and simulation
work indicates that the new procedures have good risk properties. Key Words and Phrases: Mean residual life, Mean residual life ordering, Asymp-
totic properties.
