Abstract. The earlier concept of bivariate lack of memory property has been examined and an alternative concept of bivariate lack of memory property has been presented along with a set of equivalent conditions. In this process, the link relations known in the literature on univariate lack of memory property have been extended to the bivariate set-up. A multivariate extension of the lack of memory property has also been proposed.
Key words and phrases: Lack of memory property, failure rate, mean residual life, coefficient of variation of residual life, bivariate extension.
