This e-book 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 different utilized components, usual examples being wreck percentages in possibility conception, blunders possibilities in mathematical records, and buffer-overflow possibilities in queueing idea. The classical huge deviation thought, constructed for distributions decaying exponentially speedy (or even speedier) at infinity, in most cases makes use of analytical tools. If the short decay situation fails, that is the case in lots of very important utilized difficulties, then direct probabilistic equipment often turn out to be effective. This monograph provides a unified and systematic exposition of the big deviation concept for heavy-tailed random walks. lots of the effects awarded within the ebook are showing in a monograph for the 1st time. a lot of them have been received via the authors.

Semiconcavity is a normal generalization of concavity that keeps lots of the reliable homes identified in convex research, yet arises in a much wider diversity of purposes. this article is the 1st finished exposition of the idea of semiconcave capabilities, and of the position they play in optimum regulate and Hamilton-Jacobi equations.

The theorem is proved. 2 Sufﬁcient conditions for subexponentiality Now we will turn to a discussion of sufﬁcient conditions for a given distribution G to belong to the class of subexponential distributions. 8) and therefore the easily veriﬁed condition G ∈ L is, quite naturally, always present in conditions sufﬁcient for G ∈ S. 4(vi). 16. A distribution G belongs to S iff G ∈ L and G2∗ (t) ∼ 2G(t) as t → ∞. ’s with a common distribution G. 17. (i) Let G ∈ S. 20) 26 Preliminaries and for any M = M (t) → ∞ such that M pt t − M one has pt G(t − y) G(dy) = o(G(t)).

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 ). 17) are asymptotically equivalent to c1 G(t) and c2 G(t), respectively, whereas the last two are negligibly small compared with G(t). 2 Subexponential distributions ζ2 ✻ P2 t ❅ ❅ ❅ P3 ❅ ❅ ❅ P4 ❅ 0 ❅ ❅ ❅ ❅ ❅ ❅ t−M M P1 ✲ t ζ1 Fig. 1. 17). Although M = o(t), the main contribution to the sum comes from the terms P1 and P2 . 16); bounds for the term P2 can be obtained in a similar way.

2), one has ∞ V I (t) := V (u) du ∼ tV (t) α−1 as t → ∞. 16) V (u) du ∼ tV (t) 1−α as t → ∞. ’s. f. V of index −α < 0 put σ(t) := V (−1) (1/t) = inf{u : V (u) < 1/t}. f. f. 21) L1 (t) ∼ L1/α t1/α . 22) as t → ∞ then Similar assertions hold for functions that are slowly or regularly varying as t decreases to zero. ’s: for any δ > 0 there exists a tδ > 0 such that for all t and v satisfying the inequalities t tδ , vt tδ one has L(vt) L(t) (1 − δ) min{v δ , v −δ } (1 + δ) max{v δ , v −δ }. 23) Proof.
