Leonid Gavrilov On Reliability Theory

I mentioned the work of Leonid Gavrilov and Natalia Gavrilova last week: here is the full IEEE Spectrum article on the reliability theory of aging. "The problem is that our bodies deteriorate with age. For most of our lives, the risk of death is increasing exponentially, doubling every eight years. So, why do we fall apart, and what can we do about it?" Reliability theory has proven to be very useful in the manufacturing world - it seems that it can be equally useful in the fight to cure aging and greatly extend our healthy life spans. If you want to read more, Leonid Gavrilov has kindly placed an article on his work here at the Longevity Meme.
