Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have K i.i.d. exponentially distributed random variables with mean unity. I need to find the CDF and PDF of the summation of the largest two random variables. How can I do that? The problem in this case is that the combinations are not independent.

Thanks in advance
