Exponential characterizations motivated by the structure of order statistics in samples of size two
Motivated by the observation that for a sample of size two from an exponential distribution, the largest order statistic is distributed as a convolution of two independent exponential random variables with distributions differing only in their intensity or rate parameter, a spectrum of related characterizations of the exponential distribution are identified and verified.
