This paper considers robustness of Nonparametric Predictive Inference (NPI), in particular considering inference involving future order statistics. The concept of robust inference is usually aimed at development of inference methods which are not too sensitive to data contamination or to deviations from model assumptions. In this paper we use it in a slightly narrower sense. For our aims, robustness...
