On the Borel-Cantelli Lemma and moments. (English) Zbl 1150.60305

Summary: We present some extensions of the Borel-Cantelli Lemma in terms of moments. Our result can be viewed as a new improvement to the Borel-Cantelli Lemma. Our proofs are based on the expansion of moments of some partial sums by using Stirling numbers. We also give a comment concerning the results of V.V.Petrov [Stat.Probab.Lett.67, 233–239 (2004; Zbl 1101.60300)].
