Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to prove under very general conditions that the sample quantile and the sample extreme value are asymptotically independent. This supplements the well-known facts that any two sample quantiles have a limiting bivariate normal distribution, and that the upper extreme and lower extreme are asymptotically independent (H. Cramer. Mathematical Methods of Statistics, 1946. pp. 367-378). (Author)
