On behalf of the establishing Committee of the eleventh ARTS i need to welcome all of the delegates, consultation chairpersons and authors. I really welcome new delegates, delegates from mainland Europe and from different nations. on the time of the final symposium, our 10th anniversary, we seemed again at the progress of the symposium and the aid it had acquired from such a lot of humans. now not least was once the aid given by way of Mrs Ruth Campbell who, among this symposium and the final, has retired from the nationwide Centre of structures Reliability. The establishing Committee may hereby wish to recognize a truly unique debt of gratitude, over decades, to Ruth. Our gratitude additionally is going to Dr A. Z. Keller of the collage of Bradford, the setting up Committee Chairman on the tenth Symposium, our President for eleventh ARTS and, because the starting, a staunch supporter of the humanities.

Their speeches were keenly expected. in the back of the symposium, the distinct and difficult paintings of the executive employees of the nationwide Centre of structures Reliability keeps even after it has ended. Our thank you visit them, relatively, and to the schools of Liverpool, Manchester Institute of technological know-how and know-how and Bradford for his or her constant aid to the symposium.

As stated above. we are interested in the time to first arrival of the fire at the target. In statistical terms. the time sought in the example is the smallest in a sample of one each from the 15 random variables having the distributions shown in Table 2. distributions the Since these are neither identical nor independent standard results immediately apply. However. of extreme it has been shown. value theory do results approximately apply under much weaker assumptions about contributing random variables.
