Tail behavior of the least-squares estimator
The tail behavior of the least-squares estimator in the linear regression model was studied in He et al. (Econometrica 58 (1990) 1195) under a fixed design for finite n. We now consider a random design matrix Xn and the case n-->[infinity] and study the probability with [gamma]n=F-1(1-1/n), a population analog of the maximal error. Unlike in the situation with fixed n and [gamma]-->[infinity], for n-->[infinity] we find fairly good tail behavior of LSE for normal F, for both fixed and random designs, even under heavy-tailed distribution for Xn.
