This text presents the 17th and concluding volume of the Statistics Handbook . It covers order statistics, dealing primarily with applications. The book is divided into six parts as follows: results for specific distributions; linear estimation; inferential methods; prediction; goodness-of-fit tests; and applications. Theoretical advances have been made in this area of research, and order statistics has also found important applications in many diverse areas, these include life-testing and reliability, robustness studies, statistical quality control, filtering theory, signal processing, image processing, and radar target detection. A variety of theoretical researchers, statisticians and engineers have been brought together to produce this handbook, and the subject of order statistics has been split across volumes 16 and 17. Volume 17 focuses on applications and an extensive author and subject index aims to offer easy access to all the material included in both volumes.

- Cuprins : Part 1 Results for specific distributions: order statistics in exponential distribution; higher order moments of order statistics from exponential and right-truncated exponential distributions and applications to life-testing problems; log-gamma order statistics and linear estimation of parameters; recurrence relations for single and product moments or order statistics from a generalized logistic distribution with applications to inference and generalizations to double truncation; order statistics from the type III generalized logistic distribution and applications. Part 2 Linear estimation: estimation of scale parameter based on fixed set of order statistics; optimal linear inference using selected order statistics in location-scale models; on some L-estimation in linear regression models. Part 3 Inferential methods: the role of order statistics in estimating threshold parameters; parameter estimation under multiply type-II censoring; on some aspects of ranked set sampling in parametric estimation; some uses
