The next exercise illustrates this fact. 6. Let X take on values x1 , x2 , . . with non-zero probabilities and let X1,n , X2,n , . . , Xn,n be the corresponding order statistics. We suppose that a number of possible values of X is not less than n. Show that the vectors (X1,n , . . , Xr−1,n ) and (Xr+1,n , . . , Xn,n ) are conditionally independent given that Xr,n = v is fixed and X1,n < X2,n < · · · < Xn,n . Indeed, the value v is chosen to satisfy the condition P{X1,n < · · · < Xr−1,n < Xr,n = v < Xr+1,n < · · · < Xn,n } > 0.

F, holds for any random variable, while the dual equality d F(X) = U is valid for random variables with continuous distribution functions. Let us take a sample X1 , X2 , . . f. F and consider random variables Yk = F(Xk ), k = 1, 2, . . , n. Let now Y1,n , . . ,Yn,n be order statistics based on Y1 , . . ,Yn . Since F is a monotone function, it does not disturb the ordering of X’s and hence the vector (Y1,n , . . ,Yn,n ) coincides with the vector (F(X1,n ), . . , F(Xn,n )). 2), independent random variables Y1 , .

Xr−1 , xr+1 , . . , xn | v) = g(x1 , . . , xr−1 , v)h(xr+1 , . . 7) where g(x1 , . . g(x1 , v) · · · g(xr−1 , v), 0, if x1 < · · · < xr−1 < v, otherwise, while h(xr+1 , . . g(xk+1, v) · · · g(xn , v), 0, if v < xr+1 < · · · < xn , otherwise. 7) that two sets of order statistics, (X1,n , . . , Xr−1,n ) and (Xr+1,n , . . , Xn,n ) are conditionally independent given any fixed value of Xr,n . Observing the form of g(x1 , . . , xr−1 , v) one can see that this conditional joint pdf, corresponding to order statistics X1,n , .
