Abstract

Dependence properties of occupancy numbers in the balls and bins experiment are studied. Applying such properties, we investigate further dependence structures of order statistics X1:n[less-than-or-equals, slant]X2:n[less-than-or-equals, slant]...[less-than-or-equals, slant]Xn:n of n independent random variables X1,X2,...,Xn with possibly different distributions. For 1[less-than-or-equals, slant]i s} or {Xi:n[less-than-or-equals, slant]s} then is decreasing in i for fixed s. It is also shown that in this situation, if each random variable Xk has a continuous distribution function and if Ai,s is either {Xi-1:n
