Further, let U I ,, < U2: ,, < • •• < U„,„ and X I , < X 2 „ < < X„ : ,, be the order statistics obtained from these samples. Specifically, when F(x) is continuous the probability integral transformation U = F(X) produces a standard uniform distribution. , n. 2), it is easy to verify that - ,► F -I (U ) = X , ; ; i = 1,2, ...
