Abstract. Metropolis algorithms along with Gibbs steps are proposed to perform a Bayesian analysis for the Block and Basu (ACBVE) bivariate exponential distribution. We also consider the use of Gibbs sampling to develop Bayesian inference for accelerated life tests assuming a power rule model and the ACBVE distribution. The methodology developed in this paper is exemplified with two examples.
Key words and phrases: Bivariate exponential distribution, Gibbs sampling, Metropolis algorithm, accelerated life testing.
