The Fractiles of Gumbel (A,B) sample skewness sk=m3/(m2^1.5)

Based on that skewness of Gumbel (A, B) samples do have positive Skewness independently of the parameter´s values, but varying with sizes, I had shown that this characteristic can be used to separate from the Symmetric Populations such are the Normal/Gaussian ones.

G(A, B) sample skewness independence

quantiles are
_______________ 0.025__0.050__0.950__0.975__

n=250__________0.612__0.673__1.643__ 1.813__


n=150__G(0,6)__ 0.498__0.573__1.727__1.938__
n=450________ 0.724__0.779__1.559__1.692__
______________ 0.730__0.776__1.552__1.678__
n=600_________ 0.766__0.815__1.497__1.595__
______________ 0.772__0.819__1.509__1.618__

From these results is worth to retain, 0.05 fractiles,

___ n=150___0.567
___ n=300__ 0.706
___ n=450__ 0.777
___ n=600__ 0.817

It´s true that the parameter is constant along all defining parameter´s duo values, A, B, (see Note) but in what concerns finite samples they should be evaluate, sure. No surprising at all.

In error the Gumbel skewness at:
It should be as at
and the value is 1.12 approx.
