Title

General Saddlepoint Approximations with Applications to L Statistics

Authors
Easton, George S.

Abstract Saddlepoint approximations are extended to general statistics. The technique is applied to derive approximations to the density of linear combinations of order statistics, including trimmed means. A comparison with exact results shows the accuracy of these approximations even in very small sample sizes.
