# Some Useful Functions for Functional Limit Theorems

@article{Whitt1980SomeUF, title={Some Useful Functions for Functional Limit Theorems}, author={Ward Whitt}, journal={Math. Oper. Res.}, year={1980}, volume={5}, pages={67-85} }

Many useful descriptions of stochastic models can be obtained from functional limit theorems invariance principles or weak convergence theorems for probability measures on function spaces. These descriptions typically come from standard functional limit theorems via the continuous mapping theorem. This paper facilitates applications of the continuous mapping theorem by determining when several important functions and sequences of functions preserve convergence. The functions considered are…

Some Useful Functions for Functional Large Deviations

Useful descriptions of stochastic models are often provided when they are represented as functions of well understood stochastic models. Properties of the well understood model can be preserved by…

Functional Limit Theorems

The classical central limit theorem was generalized to a functional central limit theorem by Donsker (1951) (see Theorem A.3.2). In words the result means that one considers the partial sums S 0,S…

We study limit theorems for a wide class of multi-parameter stochastic processes which are driven by a noise process which may be weakly or even long-range dependent. The processes under study arise…

Limit theorems for continuous-time random walks with infinite mean waiting times
