Abstract:

The expected values for samples to size four and the mixed and second moments about the origin for samples to size five, drawn from the chipopulation 1 d.f., or with one degree of freedom have been evaluated. Numerical values of these to eight decimal places are computed. Section 2 contains general formulae and some definite integrals used in the computation. The results in Section 3 have theoretical interest in showing the relationships between moments of order statistics from chi 1 d.f. and the standard normal distributions. In Section 4, there is a discussion about the number of integrals required to evaluate the first, second and mixed moments of order statistics for each N, given these moments to N-1 and the existence of the tables for the normal distribution.
