This important book presents developments in a remarkable field of inquiry in statistical/probability theory — the stress–strength model.

Many papers in the field include the enigmatic "words" P(X<Y) — or something similar — in the title. This reflects the long-established concept of ordering of distributions. The basic impetus for the study carried out by the authors of this book is the general concept of stress–strength as an interpretation of the P(X<Y) relationships, which leads to applications in reliability engineering, economics and modern medicine.
