Extreme value theory is part and parcel of any study of order statistics in one dimension. Our aim here is to consider such large sample theory for the maximum distance to the origin, and the related maximum "interpoint distance,'' in multidimensions. We show that for a family of spherically symmetric distributions, these statistics have a Gumbel-type limit, generalizing several existing results. We also discuss the other two types of limit laws and suggest some open problems. This work complements our earlier study on the minimum interpoint distance.
