Summary and Info
Order statistics and record values appear in many statistical applications and are widely used in statistical modeling and inference. In addition to these wellknown models, several other models of ordered random variables, known and new ones, are introduced which can be effectively applied, e.g., in reliability theory. The main purpose of this book is to present a concept of generalized order statistics as a unified approach to a variety of models of ordered random variables. Numerous related results on distributional and moment properties of order statistics and record values are found in the literature which are deduced separately. The concept of generalized order statistics, however, enablesa common approach to structural similarities and analogies. Well known results can be subsumed, generalized, and integrated within a general framework. Therefore, the concept of generalized order statistics provides a large class of models with many interesting, important and useful properties for both the description and the analysis of practical problems.
