We are now able to construct the probability of surviving to age t l't) - e-mtPy't) (8.93)

Anderson (2000) explores a number of properties of the model, including the predicted rate of mortality at age, the expected lifespan, maximum likelihood estimates of parameters, and connections between the parameters and physiological variables such as body size or environmental variables such as the dose of a putative toxin (Figure 8.9). I encourage you to read his paper, which is well-written and informative.
