 Nov19 awarded Popular Question Sep23 awarded Constituent Sep19 awarded Caucus May28 comment Markov chain getting stuck due to insufficient data samples @rasole, glad it helped. One request: rather than re-posting your question on the Statistics site, please click the "flag" button to ask the moderators to migrate your question to Statistics. Cross-posting the same question on multiple StackExchange sites is frowned upon. May28 answered Markov chain getting stuck due to insufficient data samples May8 awarded Popular Question Jan26 awarded Yearling Nov16 accepted Which is largest, of a bunch of normally distributed random variables? Nov15 comment Which is largest, of a bunch of normally distributed random variables? @whuber, thanks! I edited the question: in my case $n=61$. Even if $n=61$ isn't large enough to count as large, if there are good asymptotic estimates in the case where $n$ is large, that'd be interesting.

Nov6 comment The product distribution: how fast does dissimilarity increase as a function of number of samples? One application of this: hypothesis testing when you have many samples from either $\mathcal{D}_0$ or $\mathcal{D}_1$ (and you want to determine which). See also Hypothesis testing and total variation distance vs. Kullback-Leibler divergence and also this.

Oct16 awarded Self-Learner Aug19 revised L1 regression estimates median whereas L2 regression estimates mean? added 29 characters in body Aug19 comment L1 regression estimates median whereas L2 regression estimates mean? @muratoa, yes, I know the calculus derivation, but the question asks specifically for an explanation that focuses on intuition and avoids algebra. I would assume that the question-asker knows the calculus derivation already, but is looking for something that provides more intuition.
