A note on the moments of order statistics from doubly truncated exponential distribution

  • P. C. Joshi


In a recent paper [2], the author has obtained some recurrence relations between the moments of order statitics from the exponential and right truncated exponential distributions. In this paper, similar relations are derived for a doubly truncated exponential distribution. It is shown that one can obtain all the moments by using these recurrence relations.
