Abstract

Professors Balakrishnan and Zhao have written an excellent survey on the recent developments of stochastic comparisons of order statistics, which cover almost every aspect of ordering properties of order statistics from both continuous and discrete heterogeneous populations. My discussion will be limited to the skewness of order statistics and order statistics from heterogeneous populations with different shape parameters.
