[tex]

X_{n:n} = X_{(n)}

[/tex]

is the largest order statistic.

You will also occasionally see this notation used in connections of double arrays of random variables, usually when a type of limit theorem is being discussed. (double array = arrangement of rows, with number of entries increasing with each row, to illustrate growing sample sizes)

There may be others.

In what context did you encounter this?

Thanks a lot. I was using search term "rank statistic" instead of "order statistic".

[tex]

X_{n:n} = X_{(n)}
