Abstract
In this paper the statistical theory of mth extreme values is elaborated by calculation of the theoretical values of the expected mean and standard deviation of the reduced variety. ymn of the mth extremes as functions of the number of observations n, i.e. n - l( I )20,50 and 100 respectively. This calculation allows to estimate the probability function of the mth extreme value of a stochastic variety based on a limited number of observations. For six different types of recreation and traffic facilities, calculation of the probability functions of the use intensity on the first to tenth most crowded day in a year is discussed as based on observations during some years of the daily use intensity of these facilities. With the aid of these functions a justified choice of the normative day for the design capacity of similar projects can be made.
