gamma distribution; multiple range test; censored samples; restricted range; comparison with complete sample case
Samples from the gamma population are considered which are censored both above and below, that is, $r$ observations below and $s$ observations above are missing among $n$ observations. The range in such censored samples is taken up and the distribution of this restricted range is obtained, which can be compared with that in the complete sample case given in a previous paper.
