Weak invariance principle for mixing sequences in the domain of attraction of normal law. (English) Zbl 1240.60034

The weak invariance principle in a self-normalized form is proved for strictly stationary sequences of non-degenerate random variables \((X_n, n\geq 0)\) under the following set of assumptions: (1) the truncated variance function \(EX_1^2 1_{\{| X_1| \leq x\}}\) is slowly varying at infinity as a function of \(x\); (2) the \(\phi\)-mixing coefficient has a logarithmic decay and \(\phi(1) < 1/4\); (3) the variance of a specially truncated sum is equivalent to the sum of corresponding truncated variances with a positive multiplier, as a function of \(n\); the variance itself may diverge.
The main result is a new interesting development in the mainstream of the papers [R. C. Bradley, Ann. Probab. 16, No.  1, 313–332 (1988; Zbl 0643.60018); E. Giné, F. Götze and D. M. Mason, Ann.
