On the almost sure convergence of randomly indexed maximum of random variables

Andrzej Krajka, Zdzisław Rychlik, Joanna Wasiura-Maślany


We prove an almost sure random version of a maximum limit theorem, using logarithmic means for \(\max_{1\leq i\leq N_n} X_i\), where \(\{X_n, n \geq 1\}\) is a sequence of identically distributed random variables and \(\{N_n, n \geq 1\}\) is a sequence of positive integer random variables independent of \(\{X_n, n \geq 1\}\). Furthermore, we consider the almost sure random version of a limit theorem for \(k\)th order statistics.
