abstract

  • In this paper, we review some recent results on the stochastic comparison of order statistics and related statistics from independent and heterogeneous proportional hazard rates models, gamma variables, geometric variables, and negative binomial variables. We highlight the close connections that exist between some classical stochastic orders and majorization-type orders.
