We did observe this behavior close the low Reynolds threshold, as did Fleming et al. (2000) but in an indirect way (see Figs. 2 and 4 of their paper ), and one can conclude that these bursts are characteristic of a marginally unstable MRI.

The simplest situation is when there is no censoring, in which case it is known that Cox’s partial likelihood for the proportional hazard model is also a genuine likelihood based on part of the data, that is, on the ranks of all the observed failure times (Fleming and Harrington (1991), Chapter 4).

When there is censoring, the discussion in Fleming and Harrington (1991) shows that a further sacrifice of efficiency is needed in order to arrive at Cox’s partial likelihood via the rank-data formulation.
