This tag is for questions pertaining to the probabilistic/statistical theory of extreme deviations from the median of probability distributions. A central result of this theory is the Fisher–Tippett–Gnedenko theorem. It is not to be confused with the extreme-value-theorem tag that refers to a theorem for real valued continuous functions on a closed and bounded interval.
