In this paper, Anatoli Yashin examines mathematically how individual differences in frailty ("susceptibility" to death), defined as a quadratic function of the environmental factors, affect the mortality rates in a population. He goes on to show how our chances of survival depend on the extent of our knowledge about the processes affecting death.
