Characterization of continuous distributions through conditional expectation of function of generalized order statistics-an alternative approach

A. H. Khan, M. J. S. Khan


A general form of continuous distribution has been characterized through the conditional expectation of function of generalized order statistics and record values using Meijer’s G-function. Further, various deductions for order statistics, records, sequential order statistics and progressively censored samples are discussed.


Characterization, Meijer’s G-function, records, generalized order statistics.
