Abstract:

The objective of this research project is the development of a generalized computer program for use in determining some properties of order statistics. The program is designed primarily for cases in which numerical integration is required. The data to be produced will include tables for the probability density function and cumulative distribution of order statistics. In addition, summarizing tables for the mean value of order statistics, and the values of the variance, skewness and kurtosis of the order statistic probability density functions, cross-indexed by sample size and order statistic, will also be produced. The principal goals of this project are a listing of this generalized program, and sample tables of data produced for order statistics based upon samples drawn from a normally distributed population with mean value equal to zero and variance equal to one.
