dc.description.abstract In this paper, we solve for some cases a conjecture by Kochar and Korwar (1996) in relation with the normalized spacings of the order statistics related to a sample of independent exponential random variables with different scale parameter. In the case of a sample of size n=3, they proved the ordering of the normalized spacings and conjectured that result holds for all n. We give the proof of this conjecture for n=4 and for both spacing and normalized spacings. We also generalize some results to n>4
