The main result of the paper is the following characterization of the generalized arcsine density p γ (t) = t γ−1(1 − t) γ−1/B(γ, γ) with t∈(0,1) and γ∈(0,12)∪(12,1) : a r.v. ξ supported on [0, 1] has the generalized arcsine density p γ (t) if and only if E|ξ−x|1−2γ has the same value for almost all x∈(0,1) . Moreover, the measure with density p γ (t) is a unique minimizer (in the space of all probability measures μ supported on (0, 1)) of the double expectation (γ−12)E|ξ−ξ′|1−2γ , where ξ and ξ′ are independent random variables distributed according to the measure μ. These results extend recent results characterizing the standard arcsine density (the case γ=12 ).
