We apply the result of conditional independence of blocked ordered
data established by Iliopoulos and Balakrishnan, together with the algorithm of Huffer and Lin, to obtain exact expressions for the distributions
of linear combinations of Laplace order statistics. These expressions
can then be evaluated using symbolic math package Maple. Finally, we
illustrate the computational method with some examples.
