Symmetric Alcoved Polytopes
Any d-dimensional alcoved polytope of type A is the tropical convex hull of d + 1 vertices [Jo-Ku].
Symmetric Alcoved Polytopes
In [Jo-Ku, Theorem 12], it is shown that every alcoved polytope of type An is a tropical simplex, i.e. it has d + 1 tropical generators, where d is the dimension of the alcoved polytope (which might be smaller than n if the polytope lies in a root hyperplane).

Methodologies to test hypotheses about the tail-heaviness of an underlying distribution are introduced based on results of Ro jo (1996) using the limiting behavior of the extreme spacings.
Testing for tail behavior using extreme spacings
The purpose of this paper is to develop methodologies to test hypotheses about the tail-heaviness of a distribution based on the results of Ro jo (1996).
Testing for tail behavior using extreme spacings
Ro jo (1996) proposed a classification scheme based on the asymptotic behavior of the residual life distribution.
Testing for tail behavior using extreme spacings
Table 2, as given in Ro jo (1996), classifies several common distributions using the various schemes discussed so far.
Testing for tail behavior using extreme spacings
The intuition guiding the choice of (10) as a test statistic arises from the following argument starting with a result of Ro jo (1996).
