EXk,n = The most important of sample quantiles is the sample median, which corresponds to the case p = 1/2. If n = 2k + 1, k = 1, 2, . , then the sample median is defined as Xk+1,2k+1 . For even (n = 2k, k = 1, 2, . ) size of a sample any statistics of the form α Xk,2k + (1 − α )Xk+1,2k, 0 α 1, may be regarded as the sample median. Sample medians are especially good for estimation of the location parameter in the case, when the population distribution is symmetric. We say that X is symmetric random variable if X and −X have the same distribution.

The statistic α X pn,n + (1 − α )X pn+1,n is unbiased in this case, if the following equality holds: E(α X pn,n + (1 − α )X pn+1,n) = p. 10) n+1 for the uniform U([0, 1]) distribution. 10) we obtain that α = 1 − p. EXk,n = The most important of sample quantiles is the sample median, which corresponds to the case p = 1/2. If n = 2k + 1, k = 1, 2, . , then the sample median is defined as Xk+1,2k+1 . For even (n = 2k, k = 1, 2, . ) size of a sample any statistics of the form α Xk,2k + (1 − α )Xk+1,2k, 0 α 1, may be regarded as the sample median.

G(H(Yn,n ))). 7) For instance, if we compare arbitrary order statistics X1,n , . . , Xn,n and exponential order statistics Z1,n , . . 7) can be rewritten as d (X1,n , . . , Xn,n ) = (G(1 − exp(−Z1,n )), . . , G(1 − exp(−Zn,n ))). 4. Indeed, analogous results are valid for any monotone increasing function R(x) (no necessity to suppose that R is a distribution function). Namely, if Yk = R(Xk ), k = 1, 2, . . , n, then the corresponding order statistics based on Y ’s and X’s satisfy the relation d (Y1,n , .
