A convergence rate in extreme-value theory

  • A. A. Balkema (a1) and L. De Haan (a2)

A uniform convergence rate is determined for maxima of i.i.d. random variables from a distribution in the domain of attraction of the double-exponential distribution. The result is proved under a second-order condition on the underlying distribution parallelling the one given in Smith (1982) for the domain of attraction of the bounded-below and bounded-above families of limit distributions.
