Summary: In many stochastic models, the assumption of independence among the random variables is not plausible. In fact, increases in some random variables are often related to decreases in other random variables and the assumption of negative dependence is more appropriate than independence assumptions. Weak and strong laws of large numbers are obtained for the weighted sum \(\sum^\infty_{k = 1} a_{nk} X_{nk}\) under certain moment conditions on the random variables and suitable conditions on the weights where \(\{X_{nk} : n,k \geq 1\}\) is an array of rowwise negatively dependent random variables and \(\{a_{nk} : n,k \geq 1\}\) is a Toeplitz sequence.
