Abstract:

The paper deals with order statistics from the binomial distribution. Let Xii1,2,...,M be the number of successes in N independent trials from a binomial distribution with p as the probability of success, in each trial. Let Xi be arranged in order to give X1orX2or...or XM. The discrete variable Xi or Xi take values 0,1,...,Ni1,...,M. Tables are provided giving the cumulative distribution and the expected value and variance of Xl and XM. Joint distribution of Xi and Xj is obtained. The distribution of Xj-Xij i is also derived and special cases are studied. Author
