Poisson approximations for the distribution and moments of ordered m-spacings


Glaz, Joseph; Naus, Joseph; Roos, Malgorzata; Wallenstein, Sylvan (1994). Poisson approximations for the distribution and moments of ordered m-spacings. Journal of Applied Probability, 31A:271-281.

Abstract

This article investigates the accuracy of approximations for the distribution of ordered m-spacings for i.i.d. uniform observations in the interval (0, 1). Several Poisson approximations and a compound Poisson approximation are studied. The result of a simulation study is included to assess the accuracy of these approximations. A numerical procedure for evaluating the moments of the ordered m-spacings is developed and evaluated for the most accurate approximation.
