      Balakrishnan, N.; Charalambides, Charalambos A.; Papadatos, Nickos (2003)
      Consider a simple random sample X1,X2,...,Xn, taken without replacement from a finite ordered population ∏ = {x1 ≤ x2 ≤ ⋯ ≤ XN} (n ≤ N), where each element of ∏ has equal probability to be chosen in the sample. Let X1:n ≤ ...
