Divorce isn't the greatest probability to marriage. Discouragement is.

You've most likely heard the bleak evidence: 1/2 all marriages result in divorce. The divorce fee contained in the church is equal to outdoor. so much marriages are only protecting on. yet what if those "facts" are literally myths?

1. INTRODUCTION The basic distribution theory of order statistics developed so far has assumed that the random variables constituting the random sample are absolutely continuous. In this chapter we explore the discrete case, where the basic assumption is that X I , ... d. random variables having a common discrete cdf F. We present formulas for the probability mass function (pmf) of a single order statistic and the joint pmf of two or more order statistics. ,,'s do not form a Markov chain. We also derive an expression for the pmf of the sample range, W .

15) which is just Pearson's (1934) incomplete beta function. It should he pointed out here that the expression of F1 . 15) holds for any arbitrary population whether continuous or discrete. 2). 13). - I 1 r) {F(x)} { ^ x. 1. Let us consider the standard uniform distribution with density function f(u) = 1. 0 < u < 1, and cdf F(u) = u, 0 < u < 1. Then, from Eqs. ,, (1 < i < n) to be F^ ,:,, (u)= ^ r=i (r)u'(1 —u) ^ ,= , „ n! ( n - i)! - ( 0 < u < I. 16) From Eq. 2), we have the density function of U; „ (I < i < n) to he n!

3. JOINT DISTRIBUTION OF TWO ORDER STATISTICS In order to derive the joint density function of two order statistics Xi : n and Xi: ,, (1 < i < j < n), let us first visualize the event (x i < Xi :n < x i + Sx i , x j < XX . ,, < x j + Sx) as follows: i - j 1 ] — ] — i -1 n— j ] ; xj x j + Sx j x x + Sx ; x ] ; X, < x, for i— 1 of the X,'s, x , < X, < x, + Sx i for exactly one of the X,'s, x i + Sx i < X, < x j for j — i — 1 of the X,'s, x j < X, < x, + Sx j for exactly one of the X,'s, and X, > x j + Sxj for the remaining n — j of the Xr 's.
