Large Deviations of Continuous Regular Conditional Probabilities

We study product regular conditional probabilities under measures of two coordinates with respect to the second coordinate that are weakly continuous on the support of the marginal of the second coordinate. Assuming that there exists a sequence of probability measures on the product space that satisfies a large deviation principle, we present necessary and sufficient conditions for ...

An Erdös–Révész Type Law of the Iterated Logarithm for Order Statistics of a Stationary Gaussian Process

Let \(\{X(t):t\in \mathbb R_+\}\) be a stationary Gaussian process with almost surely (a.s.) continuous sample paths, \(\mathbb E X(t) = 0, \mathbb E X^2(t) = 1\) and correlation function satisfying (i) \(r(t) = 1 - C|t|^{\alpha } + o(|t|^{\alpha })\) as \(t\rightarrow 0\) for some \(0\le \alpha \le 2\) and \(C>0\); (ii) \(\sup _{t\ge s}|r(t)|<1\) for each \(s>0\) and (iii) \(r(t) ...

From intersection local time to the Rosenblatt process

The Rosenblatt process was obtained by Taqqu (Z. Wahr. Verw. Geb. 31:287–302, 1975) from convergence in distribution of partial sums of strongly dependent random variables. In this paper, we give a particle picture approach to the Rosenblatt process with the help of intersection local time and white noise analysis, and discuss measuring its long-range dependence by means of a ...

\(U\) -Statistics of Ornstein–Uhlenbeck Branching Particle System

We consider a branching particle system consisting of particles moving according to the Ornstein–Uhlenbeck process in \(\mathbb {R}^d\) and undergoing a binary, supercritical branching with a constant rate \(\lambda >0\) . This system is known to fulfill a law of large numbers (under exponential scaling). Recently the question of the corresponding central limit theorem (CLT) has ...

Characterizations of Some Free Random Variables by Properties of Conditional Moments of Third Degree Polynomials

We investigate Laha–Lukacs properties of noncommutative random variables (processes). We prove that some families of free Meixner distributions can be characterized by the conditional moments of polynomial functions of degree 3. We also show that this fact has consequences in describing some free Lévy processes. The proof relies on a combinatorial identity. At the end of this paper ...

On Hidden Markov Processes with Infinite Excess Entropy

We investigate stationary hidden Markov processes for which mutual information between the past and the future is infinite. It is assumed that the number of observable states is finite and the number of hidden states is countably infinite. Under this assumption, we show that the block mutual information of a hidden Markov process is upper bounded by a power law determined by the ...
