# Small deviations of smooth stationary Gaussian processes

@article{FAurzada2008SmallDO, title={Small deviations of smooth stationary Gaussian processes}, author={F.Aurzada and I.A.Ibragimov and M.A.Lifshits and J. H. van Zanten}, journal={Theory of Probability and Its Applications}, year={2008}, volume={53}, pages={697-707} }

We investigate the small deviation probabilities of a class of very smooth stationary Gaussian processes playing an important role in Bayesian statistical inference. Our calculations are based on the appropriate modification of the entropy method due to Kuelbs, Li, and Linde as well as on classical results about the entropy of classes of analytic functions. They also involve Tsirelson's upper bound for small deviations and shed some light on the limits of sharpness for that estimate.
