Abstract [en]

Let an integer n >= 2 and a vector of independent, identically distributed random variables X-1, ..., X-n be given with P(X = 0) = 0 and define the self-normalized sum Z(n) = (Sigma(n)(i=1) X-i)/(Sigma(n)(i=1) X-i(2))(1/2). With a formula for EZ(n)(2) we prove that EZ(n)(2) >= 1 and that EZ(n)(2) = 1 if and only if the summands are symmetrically distributed. We also construct examples where Z(n) converges to the standard normal distribution as n tends to infinity while EZ(n)(2) tends to infinity (the distribution of the summands varies with n).
