Abstract��

Recurrent event data are often encountered in
longitudinal follow-up studies related to biomedical science,
econometrics, insurance claims, reliability and demography. The
longitudinal pattern of gaps between successive recurrent events is
often of great research interest. In this paper, we propose an
alternative model which can accommodate ``cure fraction'' in gaps,
and a nonparametric method is employed to the statistical inference.
The proposed model and methodology are demonstrated by a small
simulation result and the tumor recurrent data.

Keywords�� Correlated survival   frailty term   recurrent gap times   immune proportion   nonparametric estimation.
