Let Δk:n = Xk,n − Xk-1,n (k = 1, 2, . . . , n + 1) be the spacings based on uniform order statistics, provided X0,n = 0 and Xn+1,n = 1. Obtained from uniform spacings, ordered uniform spacings 0 = Δ0,n < Δ1,n < . . . < Δn+1,n, are discussed in the present paper. Distributional and limit results for them are in the focus of our attention.
