This thesis presents new methods of analysis of survival data based on a Dynamic Bayesian approach. The models allow the parameters to change with time. The analysis is tractable and emphasises predictive aspects of the models. The survival problems covered include linear and non-linear regression, analysis of random samples, time-dependent covariates, life tables and competing risks. The analysis is also extended to a number of point processes. Numerical applications are provided and the microcomputer software to perform them is described.
