Summary:
This thesis contains two parts. The first part derives the Bayesian estimator of the parameters in a piecewise exponential Cox proportional hazard regression model, with one unknown change point for a right censored survival data. The second part surveys the applications of change point problems to various types of data, such as long-term survival data, longitudinal data and time series data. Furthermore, the proposed method is then used to analyse a real survival data.
