Suppose we have a random service time ##T## with residual service time ##R## observed at some point along the way.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the correct way to call ##T## (in 1-2 words, without having to introduce ##R##) if:

1) For any observation time, ##\mathbb{E}R\leq\mathbb{E}T##?

2) For any observation time, ##R<T## in distribution i.e. ##T## stochastically dominates ##R##.
