### Joint pdf of functions of order statistics

Let $Y_1 < Y_2 <\ldots <Y_{10}$ be the order statistics of a random sample from a continuous type distribution with cdf $F(x)$. How would I begin to show that the joint distribution of ...

### Showing that a statistic is ancillary for a parameter

Working through a HW problem, and a hint is that for a decision rule $$T(X) = \frac{X_{(1)} + X_{(n)}}{2}$$ Then $$T - \bar{X}$$ is ancillary. Intuitively this makes complete sense, but I am ...

### Maximum Likelihood for shifted Geometric Distribution

Really struggling with this please help. Find MLE for p and c $$\ {f}(x,p,c) = (1-p)^{x-c}p$$ x=c,c+1,c+2,..... p is between 0 and 1 c is element of the integers I am ...

### CDF of largest observation in normal distribution [duplicate]

Let $X_1,...,X_n$ be a random sample from a $\mathcal{N}(\mu,1)$ distribution. Only the largest observation $Y = \max(X_1,...,X_n)$ is reported. What is the density of $Y$? How do I get there?

### Obtain order statistics using uniform order statistics

This is a homework questions. Can you guys give me some hints? Let $U_{(1)}<\cdots<U_{(n)}$ be the order statistics of a sample of size $n$ from a Uniform$(0,1)$ population. Show that ...

### Probability proofs using ordered samples

Given an ordered i.i.d sample $X_{(1)}, \dots, X_{(n)}$ from a continuous distribution $F(x)$. How can it be shown that: (1) $\text{Pr}(X_{(k)} \leq x) = \text{P}r(N(x) \geq k)$ where $N(x)$ is the ...
I have some trouble showing sufficiency for largest order statistic ${x}_{n}$. This is from Casella's text, problem 1.6.3. Let ${p}_{\theta}$ be a density function. ${p}_{\theta}{x}=c({\theta})f(x)$ ...
Here is the problem from the book: Let $X = \min(U,V)$ and $Y = \max(U,V)$ for independent $\text{uniform}(0,1)$ variables $U$ and $V$. Find the distributions of a) $X$; b) $1-Y$; c) $Y-X$. I ...
