Abstract:

Let X be normally distributed with mean zero and variance 1, and let Y the absolute value of 1xsq root of nsup2dn where d and n are positive numbers. The asymptotic value of the expected value of Y for large n, is considered. The asymptotic behavior of a hypergeometric function, it is shown, can be derived from the expected value of Y. Author
