Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Many of the classical submartingale inequalities, including Doob's maximal inequality and upcrossing inequality, are valid for sequences Sj such that the (Sj+1-Sj's are associated (positive mean) random variables, and for more general "demisubmartingales". The demisubmartingale maximal inequality is used to prove weak convergence to the two-parameter Wiener process of the partial sum processes constructed from a stationary two-parameter sequence of associated random variables Xijwith {Mathematical expression}.
