Abstract [en]

Let {X-i}(i >= 1) be an i.i.d. sequence of random variables and define, for n >= 2, T-n={(n-1/2 (sigma) over capn-1Sn)(0), ((sigma) over capn > 0,)((sigma) over capn=0,) with S-n = Sigma(n)(i=1) X-i, (sigma) over cap (2)(n)=1/n-1 Sigma(n)(i=1)(X-i - n(-1)S(n))(2). We investigate the connection between the distribution of an observation X-i and finiteness of E vertical bar T-n vertical bar(r) for (n, r) is an element of N->= 2 x R+. Moreover, assuming T-n ->(d) T, we prove that for any r > 0, lim(n ->infinity) E vertical bar T-n vertical bar(r) = E vertical bar T vertical bar(r) < infinity, provided there is an integer n(0) such that E vertical bar T-n0 vertical bar(r) is finite.
