comment Probabilistic ordering
I understand that the 3 parameters are insufficient, I just want to have parameters to characterize these orderings, even if they are 5. But is there a way to do this other than just write the different probabilities for all the cases separately?

comment Is there an analytic approximation to the minimum function?
The generalized mean, and softmax are probably something similar to what I am looking for, since this is for an applied work (modeling), and I wanted something that is hopefully not an eyesore(?) and can be extended to more than two arguments.

@RandomGuy, take a look at this handout: web.as.uky.edu/statistics/users/viele/sta695s02/rejimp/…

@RandomGuy, I have corrected my answer, hopefully the rejection sampling article should be clear.

@mjqxxxx, We need to have $2f-g \ge 0 $. Your example doesn't satisfy that.
