A general theory of multivariate new better than used (NBU) distributions is developed. Using the general theory some multivariate NBU conditions are introduced and studied. Some of the results apply as well to multivariate increasing hazard rate average (IHRA) and exponential distributions. Proofs of some related well-known implications are simplified.
