I do not need a accelerated failure model, but a proportional hazard model with a f0= weibull, exponential, loglogistic or lognormal baseline distribution. The hazard function is
where lambda0 is the baseline hazard
lambda0(t)=f0(t)/(1-F0(t)) where f0 and F0 are the baseline density and cumulative distribution functions.
This is a proportional hazard model since the ratio lambda(t|Xi)/lambda(t|Xj)=exp(Xi*beta)/exp(Xj*beta) does not depend on t.
