Some properties of weighted multivariate empirical processes. (English) Zbl 0548.60023

The authors prove an exponential bound for the multivariate empirical process indexed by rectangles. This bound is applied to study the local behaviour of weighted empirical processes and the corresponding weak and strong convergence results of these processes. The proof of the exponential inequality is based on the relation of empirical processes to Poisson processes; the considered weight functions are of the form \(q\circ F\), where F is the underlying distribution function.
