Abstract: In this article, we derive exact explicit expressions for the single, double, triple, and quadruple moments of order statistics from the generalized Pareto distribution (GPD). Also, we obtain the best linear unbiased estimates of the location and scale parameters (BLUE's) of the GPD. We then use these results to determine the mean, variance, and coefficients of skewness and kurtosis of certain linear functions of order statistics. These are then utilized to develop approximate confidence intervals for the generalized Pareto parameters using Edgeworth approximation and compare them with those based on Monte Carlo simulations. To show the usefulness of our results, we also present a numerical example. Finally, we give an application to real data.
