Statistics Seminars: The strong renewal theorem

Presented by Ron Doney, University of Manchester

11 December 2017 14:00 in CM221

The strong renewal theorem (SRT) is the statement that the renewal measure of a random walk which is in the domain of attraction of a stable law with alpha less than 1 has the local behaviour at infinity which corresponds to known results about the renewal function. More than 50 years ago this result was established for alpha greater than 1/2, but it was known that it doesn't hold in all cases when alpha is less than or equal to 1/2. In this talk I will present a NASC for the SRT to hold.
