Since my first representation of the rank statistic as paired was incorrect, here is the histogram produced by the simulation

perm=sample(1:20)
saple[t]=sum(abs(sort(perm[1:10])-sort(perm[11:20])))
when . It is obviously much closer to zero than previously.

An interesting change is that the regression of the log-mean on produces

> lm(log(memean)~log(enn))
Call:
lm(formula = log(memean) ~ log(enn))
Coefficients:
(Intercept) log(enn)
-1.162 1.499
meaning that the mean is in rather than in or :

> summary(lm(memean~eth-1))
Coefficients:
Estimate Std. Error t value Pr(>|t|)
eth 0.3117990 0.0002719 1147 <2e-16 ***
with a very good fit.
