Survival function from probabilities of no event at time t

  1. Jul 8, 2010 #1
    Hello World,

    How can I formulate a survival function from a sequence of probabilities of no event at every time t, i.e P(0), P(1), P(2),....,P(t) where P(i), for i=0,1,...,t is the probability of no event at time i????

    Thanks

    If you mean survival means no event and if the probabilities {P(i)} are all independent, then the probability of survival is simply P(1)xP(2)x...xP(t).
