This ebook specializes in the asymptotic habit of the possibilities of enormous deviations of the trajectories of random walks with 'heavy-tailed' (in specific, on a regular basis various, sub- and semiexponential) leap distributions. huge deviation chances are of significant curiosity in several utilized parts, ordinary examples being wreck percentages in probability idea, blunders percentages in mathematical information, and buffer-overflow chances in queueing conception. The classical huge deviation thought, constructed for distributions decaying exponentially speedy (or even speedier) at infinity, as a rule makes use of analytical tools. If the short decay fails, that is the case in lots of very important utilized difficulties, then direct probabilistic equipment frequently turn out to be effective. This monograph provides a unified and systematic exposition of the massive deviation conception for heavy-tailed random walks. many of the effects provided within the ebook are showing in a monograph for the 1st time. a lot of them have been acquired via the authors.

Example text

Since the functions l(t) and z(t) = t/l(t) are ‘equally smooth’, we also have z(t + Δ) ∼ z(t) and Δ(t) ∼ Δ(t ) for t := t − Δ(t). 25, we will state an important corollary of that assertion which establishes a connection between the distribution classes under consideration. 28. 36) then G ∈ S. (ii) For α ∈ [0, 1) one has Se(α) ⊂ S. 28. 25 are met. 26. It remains to demonstrate that G ∈ L. 36) with Δ = c it follows that l(t+c)−l(t) = O(l(t)/t)+o(1), and hence we just have to show that l(t) = o(t).

12(ii), (iii) it follows immediately that if G ∈ S then also Gn∗ ∈ S, n = 2, 3, . . d. ’s ζ1 , . . 12(ii), one obtains that Gn∨ also belongs to S. d. ’s. This means that ‘large’ values of this sum are mainly due to the presence of a single ‘large’ summand ζi in it. One can easily see that this property is characteristic of subexponentiality. 15. 18 of [113]). 12(ii). 12. (i) First assume that c1 c2 > 0 and that both distributions Gi are concentrated on [0, ∞). 8). ’s. 17) where (see Fig. 1) P1 := P(ζ1 t − ζ2 , ζ2 ∈ [0, M )), P2 := P(ζ2 t − ζ1 , ζ1 ∈ [0, M )), P3 := P(ζ2 t − ζ1 , ζ1 ∈ [M, t − M )), P4 := P(ζ2 M, ζ1 t − M ).

4(ii), G ∈ L if for the function t l(t) = − ln G(t) one has the representation l(t) = 0 ε(u) du, where ∞ ε(u) 0, ε(u) → 0 as ε(u) du = ∞. 24) 0 Define a piecewise constant function ε(t) as follows. Put t0 := 0, tk := 2k−1 , k = 1, 2, . . , and let ε(t) := 1 for t ∈ [t0 , t1 ) and, for k = 1, 2, . . , ⎧ tn ⎨ t−1 n = 2k − 1, ε(u) du, n 0 ε(t) := t ∈ [tn , tn+1 ), ⎩ t−1 = (t −1 n = 2k. , n+1 − tn ) n Clearly, by construction one has t2k−1 l(t2k ) = t2k ε(u) du + 0 ε(u) du = 2l(t2k−1 ), k = 1, 2, .
