Summary: [For part I see ibid. 21, No. 2, 759-790 (1993; Zbl 0776.60045).]
Let \((X_ i)_{i \in \mathbb{Z}^ d_ +}\) be an array of zero-mean independent identically distributed random vectors with values in \(\mathbb{R}^ k\) with finite variance, and let \({\mathcal S}\) be a class of Borel subsets of \([0,1]^ d\). If, for the usual metric, \({\mathcal S}\) is totally bounded and has a convergent entropy integral, we obtain a strong invariance principle for an appropriately smoothed version of the partial-sum process \(\{\sum_{i \in \nu S}X_ i:S \in{\mathcal S}\}\) with an error term depending only on \({\mathcal S}\) and on the tail distribution of \(X_ 1\). In particular, when \({\mathcal S}\) is the class of subsets of \([0,1]^ d\) with \(\alpha\)-differentiable boundaries introduced by \textit{R. Dudley} [J. Approximation Theory 10, 227-236 (1974; Zbl 0275.41011)], we prove that our result is optimal.
