Written for those without an advanced background in mathematics or statistics, this undergraduate-level text includes a number of references to applications and a new list of further reading for self-study which is new to this edition. The authors introduce order statistics and applications, then cover basic distribution theory, including joint distribution of two order statistics, discrete order statistics, including joint probability mass functions and distributions of the range, order statistics from specific distributions, including Bernoulli and Poisson distributions moment relations, bounds, approximations, characterizations using order statistics, order statistics in statistical inference, asymptotic theory, including central and intermediate order statistics and record values. The authors include subject and author indices. The result is an effective classroom text that can double as a self-study guide or professional reference.
