Abstract
Recent advances in computer modeling allow us to find closer fits to data. The emphasis is on the interdependence between occurrences at kidney dialysis under a Bayesian semiparametric approach. The interdependence between kidney dialysis occurrences is modeled by a bivariate exponential that is proposed in this article. The application is shown on the McGilchrist and Aisbett kidney data set with the use of the exponential distribution. The proposed bivariate exponential model has exponential marginal densities, correlated via latent random variables and with finite probability of simultaneous occurrence. Extension of the model to a bivariate Erlang type distribution with same shape parameter is presented.
