Asymptotics for statistical functionals of long-memory sequences


  • Beutner, Eric
  • Wu, Wei Biao
  • Zähle, Henryk


We present two general results that can be used to obtain asymptotic properties for statistical functionals based on linear long-memory sequences. As examples for the first one we consider L- and V-statistics, in particular tail-dependent L-statistics as well as V-statistics with unbounded kernels. As an example for the second result we consider degenerate V-statistics. To prove these results we also establish a weak convergence result for empirical processes of linear long-memory sequences, which improves earlier ones.
