Exponential Inequalities for Positively Associated Random Variables and Applications

By Yang Shanchao, Liu Ailin and Xing Guodong


<p>Abstract</p> <p>We establish some exponential inequalities for positively associated random variables without the boundedness assumption. These inequalities improve the corresponding results obtained by Oliveira (2005). By one of the inequalities, we obtain the convergence rate <inline-formula> <graphic file="1029-242X-2008-385362-i1.gif"/></inline-formula> for the case of geometrically decreasing covariances, which closes to the optimal achievable convergence rate for independent random variables under the Hartman-Wintner law of the iterated logarithm and improves the convergence rate <inline-formula> <graphic file="1029-242X-2008-385362-i2.gif"/></inline-formula> derived by Oliveira (2005) for the above case.</p
