Chapter 2 Some Basic Large Sample Theory 1M o des of Convergence Consider a probability space (Ω , A ,P ). For our frst three defnitions we suppose that X , X n , n 1 are all random variables defned on this one probability space. Defnition 1.1 We say that X n converges a.s. to X , denoted by X n a.s. X ,i ± X n ( ω ) X ( ω ) ±or all ω A where P ( A c )=0 , (1) or, equivalently, i±, ±or every ²> 0 P (sup m n | X m X | ) 0a s n →∞ . (2) Defnition 1.2 We say that X n converges in probability to X and write X n p X i± ±or every 0 P ( | X n X | ) s n . (3) Defnition 1.3 Let 0 <r< .W esay that X n converges in r th mean to X , denoted by X n r X ± E | X n X | r s n ±or ±unctions X n ,X L r ( P ) . (4) Defnition 1.4 We say that X n converges in distribution to X , denoted by X n d X ,or F n F , or L ( X n ) L ( X ) with L re±erring to the the “law” or “distribution”, i± the distribution ±unctions F n and F X n and X satis±y F n ( x ) F ( x )a s n ±or each continuity point x F. (5) Note that F n 1 [1 /n, ) d 1 [0 , ) F even though F n (0) = 0 does not converge to 1 = F (0). The statement d will carry with it the implication that F corresponds to a (proper) probability measure P . Defnition 1.5 A sequence o± random variables { X n } is uniformly integrable lim λ →∞ limsup n →∞ E © | X n | 1 [ | X n |≥ λ ] ª =0 . (6) 3

4 CHAPTER 2. SOME BASIC LARGE SAMPLE THEORY Theorem 1.1 (Convergence implications). A. If X n a.s. X , then X n p X . B. If X n p X , then X n 0 a.s. X for some subsequence { n 0 } . C. If X n r X , then X n p X . D. If X n p X and | X n | r is uniformly integrable, then X n r X . If X n p X and limsup n E | X n | r E | X | r , then X n r X . E. If X n r X then X n r 0 X for all 0 <r 0 r . F. If X n p X , then X n d X . G. X n p X if and only if every subsequence { n 0 } contains a further subsequence { n 0 } for which X n 0 a.s.
