§    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we consider the use of Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods for a Bayesian analysis of survival data with hazard function in form of U. Different models are considered being the model introduced by Ryu (1993)studied in details. An example is introduced with real data to illustrate the proposed methodology.

§     KEYWORDS: survival data, hazard function in form of U, Bayesian analysis.
