On the exact asymptotic behaviour of the distribution of the supremum in the "critical" case
We consider a random walk drifting to -[infinity] with distribution F of the steps. The paper considers the exact asymptotic behaviour of the distribution D of the supremum when there exists [gamma]>0 such that and , thus filling the remaining gap in describing the behaviour of D in terms of -distributions.
