The limit theorems on extremes for Gaussian random fields


  • Tan, Zhongquan


Motivated by the papers of Choi (2010) and Pereira (2010), in this work, we proved two limit theorems for the maxima of Gaussian fields. First, a Cox limit theorem is established for a stationary strongly dependent Gaussian random field. Second, a Gumbel type extreme limit theorem is proved for a non-stationary Gaussian random field with covariance functions satisfying the Cesàro convergence.
