    Refinements of first order asymptotic results axe reviewed, with a number of Ph.D. projects supervised by van Zwet serving as stepping stones. Berry-Esseen bounds and Edgeworth expansions are discussed for R-, L- and [/-statistics. After these special classes, the question about a general second order theory for asymptotically normal statistics is addressed. As a final topic, empirical Edgeworth expansions are considered.
