### Percentage Points and Modes of Order Statistics from the Normal Distribution

Shanti S. Gupta

#### Abstract

This paper deals with the order statistics from the normal distribution. Equations are obtained for the percentage points and the modal values of the $k$th order statistic in a sample of size $n$. Table I gives some percentage points for selected values of $k$ and $n$. In Table II the modal values of the largest order statistic are given. Appropriate symmetry relations which enable one to obtain certain missing values in Tables I and II are mentioned.
