Local Influence Analysis of Varying-Coefficient Model with Random Right Censorship


For this model, this paper studies the method and application of the diagnostic mostly. Firstly, the primary model is transformed to varying-coefficient model by using a general transformation method. Secondly, a simple estimation form of the coefficient functions is obtained by employing the B spline. Then, local influence is discussed and concise influence matrix is obtained. At last, an example is given to illustrate our results.
