Strong laws for weighted sums of NA random variables. (English) Zbl 1247.60036
Summary: Strong laws are established for linear statistics that are weighted sums of an negatively associated (NA) random sample. The results obtained not only generalize the results of S. H. Sung [Stat. Probab. Lett. 52, No. 4, 413–419 (2001; Zbl 1020.60016)] to NA random variables, but also extend and sharpen them.
