This paper deals with the dependent left censoring scheme when the survival time variable and censoring variable are dependent and have Marshal–Olkin bivariate exponential distribution. We use the expectation–conditional maximization algorithm for finding the maximum likelihood estimates of the unknown parameters. From Bayesian point of view, based on a particular choice of hyperparameters of prior...
