Asymptotic distribution of sum and maximum for Gaussian processes

  • Hwai-Chung Ho (a1) and William P. McCormick (a2)

Let {X n , n ≥ 0} be a stationary Gaussian sequence of standard normal random variables with covariance function r(n) = E X 0 X n . Let Under some mild regularity conditions on r(n) and the condition that r(n)lnn = o(1) or (r(n)lnn)−1 = O(1), the asymptotic distribution of is obtained. Continuous-time results are also presented as well as a tube formula tail area approximation to the joint distribution of the sum and maximum.
