Approximations to Distributions of Central Order Statistics
Under weak conditions on the underlying d.f. it can be proved that central (as well as intermediate) order statistics are asymptotically normally distributed. This result easily extends to the case of the joint distribution of a fixed number of central order statistics. In Section 4.1 we shall discuss some conditions which yield the weak and strong asymptotic normality of central order statistics.
