What is the function that I get when I take a large sample from an exponential distribution (many values from the same distribution) and sort the sample points. I'm a bit surprised it's not really exponential.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The shape seems to fit some data I have nicely, but I don't know the function to fit :(

I found something about order statistics, but that seems to give answers to other questions.

Anyone a suggestion?
