Abstract : Approximation formulas for the expected values, variances and covariances of the order statistics yi, which provide a very good approximation for sample sizes equal to or larger than N = 20, are developed. Their applications to graphical analysis and parameter estimations by use of desk computing machines and digital computers are demonstrated. Tables which simplify the computing procedure are presented. (Author)
