Abstract:

Under certain conditions a sample intermediate order statistic from a sequence of independent and identically distributed random variables has an almost sure representation involving the empirical distribution and a remainder term of small order. In this paper an asymptotic approximation of the second moment of the remainder term is obtained. It is assumed that the marginal distribution function of the independent and identically distributed sequence has a finite left endpoint. Author
