A First Course in Order Statistics Paperback

Part of the Classics in Applied Mathematics series


Written in a simple style that requires no advanced mathematical or statistical background, A First Course in Order Statistics introduces the general theory of order statistics and their applications.

The book covers topics such as distribution theory for order statistics from continuous and discrete populations, moment relations, bounds and approximations, order statistics in statistical inference and characterization results, and basic asymptotic theory. This classic text will aid readers in understanding much of the current literature on order statistics, a burgeoning field of study that is a requisite for any practicing statistician and an essential part of the training for students in statistics.
