Abstract
The shape of the probability distribution of a set of high-resolution concentration fluctuation measurements from an ion plume is studied using order statistics and certain selected quantiles derived from them. A number of graphical techniques based on the order statistics are shown to be useful for the assessment of the symmetry and tailweight of the underlying distribution of concentration. These graphical techniques are applied, from both a descriptive and a computational point of view, to elucidate the underlying distributional shape of concentration and to assess the characterization efficacy of the probability distributions that have been proposed as models for concentration fluctuations.
