Abstract : A bibliography is provided for publications pertaining to the asymptotically best linear unbiased estimators (ABLUE'S) of location and scale parameters based on a subset of the sample quantiles and the associated problem of optimal quantile, or spacing selection. Applications of the estimators to problems of hypothesis testing, percentile estimation and robust statistical inference are also included. A selected set of references is provided which discuss the relationship between the problem of optimal spacing selection and other statistical problems of optimal grouping, regression design for continuous time regression and optimal stratification.
