A note on the strong law of large numbers for positively dependent random variables. (English) Zbl 0661.60048
The author presents strong laws of large numbers for sequences of random variables which are either pairwise quadrant dependent or associated. The theorems presented give extensions of Kolmogorov’s classical strong law to positively dependent random variables.
