### Properties and numerical evaluation of the Rosenblatt distribution

This paper studies various distributional properties of the Rosenblatt distribution. We begin by describing a technique for computing the cumulants. We then study the expansion of the Rosenblatt distribution in terms of shifted chi-squared distributions. We derive the coefficients of this expansion and use these to obtain the L\'{e}vy-Khintchine formula and derive asymptotic properties of the L\'{e}vy measure. This allows us to compute the cumulants, moments, coefficients in the chi-square expansion and the density and cumulative distribution functions of the Rosenblatt distribution with a high degree of precision. Tables are provided and software written to implement the methods described here is freely available by request from the authors.Comment: Published in at http://dx.doi.org/10.3150/12-BEJ421 the Bernoulli (http://isi.cbs.nl/bernoulli/) by the International Statistical Institute/Bernoulli Society (http://isi.cbs.nl/BS/bshome.htm

### The empirical process of some long-range dependent sequences with an application to U-statistics

Let (Xj)âˆž j = 1 be a stationary, mean-zero Gaussian process with covariances r(k) = EXk + 1 X1 satisfying r(0) = 1 and r(k) = k-DL(k) where D is small and L is slowly varying at infinity. Consider the two-parameter empirical process for G(Xj), $\bigg\{F_N(x, t) = \frac{1}{N} \sum^{\lbrack Nt \rbrack}_{j = 1} \lbrack 1\{G(X_j) \leq x\} - P(G(X_1) \leq x) \rbrack; // -\infty < x < + \infty, 0 \leq t \leq 1\bigg\},$ where G is any measurable function. Noncentral limit theorems are obtained for FN(x, t) and they are used to derive the asymptotic behavior of some suitably normalized von Mises statistics and U-statistics based on the G(Xj)'s. The limiting processes are structurally different from those encountered in the i.i.d. case

### Weak convergence of sums of moving averages in the Î±-stable domain of attraction

Skorohod has shown that the convergence of sums of i.i.d. random variables to an a-stable Levy motion, with 0 < a < 2, holds in the weak-J1 sense. J1 is the commonly used Skorohod topology. We show that for sums of moving averages with at least two nonzero coefficients, weak-J1 conver- gence cannot hold because adjacent jumps of the process can coalesce in the limit; however, if the moving average coefficients are positive, then the adjacent jumps are essentially monotone and one can have weak-M1 con- vergence. M1 is weaker than J1, but it is strong enough for the sup and inf functionals to be continuous

### Hermite rank, power rank and the generalized Weierstrass transform

Using the theory of generalized Weierstrass transform, we show that the Hermite rank is identical to the power rank in the Gaussian case, and that an Hermite rank higher than one is unstable with respect to a level shift.Accepted manuscrip

### Behavior of the generalized Rosenblatt process at extreme critical exponent values

The generalized Rosenblatt process is obtained by replacing the single critical exponent characterizing the Rosenblatt process by two different exponents living in the interior of a triangular region. What happens to that generalized Rosenblatt process as these critical exponents approach the boundaries of the triangle? We show by two different methods that on each of the two symmetric boundaries, the limit is non-Gaussian. On the third boundary, the limit is Brownian motion. The rates of convergence to these boundaries are also given. The situation is particularly delicate as one approaches the corners of the triangle, because the limit process will depend on how these corners are approached. All limits are in the sense of weak convergence in C[0,1]. These limits cannot be strengthened to convergence in L2(Î©).Supported in part by NSF Grants DMS-10-07616 and DMS-13-09009 at Boston University.

### (1/Î±)-Self similar Î±-stable processes with stationary increments

Originally published as a technical report no. 892, February 1990 for Cornell University Operations Research and Industrial Engineering. Available online: http://hdl.handle.net/1813/8775In this note we settle a question posed by Kasahara, Maejima, and Vervaat. We show that the Î±-stable LÃ©vy motion is the only Î±-stable process with stationary increments if 0 < Î± < 1. We also introduce new classes of Î±-stable processes with stationary increments for 1 < Î± < 2.https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0047259X9090031C?via=ihubhttps://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0047259X9090031C?via=ihubAccepted mansucrip

### Distribution functions of Poisson random integrals: Analysis and computation

We want to compute the cumulative distribution function of a one-dimensional Poisson stochastic integral I(\krnl) = \displaystyle \int_0^T \krnl(s) N(ds), where $N$ is a Poisson random measure with control measure $n$ and \krnl is a suitable kernel function. We do so by combining a Kolmogorov-Feller equation with a finite-difference scheme. We provide the rate of convergence of our numerical scheme and illustrate our method on a number of examples. The software used to implement the procedure is available on demand and we demonstrate its use in the paper.Comment: 28 pages, 8 figure

### Central limit theorems for double Poisson integrals

Motivated by second order asymptotic results, we characterize the convergence in law of double integrals, with respect to Poisson random measures, toward a standard Gaussian distribution. Our conditions are expressed in terms of contractions of the kernels. To prove our main results, we use the theory of stable convergence of generalized stochastic integrals developed by Peccati and Taqqu. One of the advantages of our approach is that the conditions are expressed directly in terms of the kernel appearing in the multiple integral and do not make any explicit use of asymptotic dependence properties such as mixing. We illustrate our techniques by an application involving linear and quadratic functionals of generalized Ornstein--Uhlenbeck processes, as well as examples concerning random hazard rates.Comment: Published in at http://dx.doi.org/10.3150/08-BEJ123 the Bernoulli (http://isi.cbs.nl/bernoulli/) by the International Statistical Institute/Bernoulli Society (http://isi.cbs.nl/BS/bshome.htm
