Summary: Consider \((X, Y)\), an \(n+1\) dimensional random vector with non-negative coordinates. Consider the conditional distribution of \(X\) given \(\lambda'X<Y\) . The \(X_i\)’s are viewed as survival times of \(k\) components in a system. The random variable \(Y\) is a concomitant variable reflecting, perhaps, operating conditions. The resulting conditional distribution of \(X\) is called a hidden truncation distribution since it is assumed that \(Y\) is hidden (i.e., not observable). The present paper investigates the distributional structure of such models.
