Ordered sample from two-parameter GEM distribution
Pitman's two-parameter GEM distribution is characterized by the product moments. Based on that fact, sampling distributions of some statistics of a random sample from the two-parameter GEM distribution are derived. The main statistics are the frequencies of categories in a sample in the order of appearance, the intervals between new categories, and number of distinct categories.
