Distributions of Order Statistics
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
If independent values are drawn from some distribution and ordered from smallest to largest, the value is the order statistic. The distribution of this value depends on both the underlying distribution and the size of the sample, . In this Demonstration, you can choose among four probability distributions on the unit interval and view the distributions of the order statistics for that distribution for samples of various sizes. Mouse over the curves to view the means of the various distributions in the image.
