Let {Xn(t), t∈[0,∞)}, n∈ℕ, be standard stationary Gaussian processes. The limit distribution of \supt∈[0,T(n)]|X n(t)| is established as rn(t), the correlation function of {Xn(t), t∈[0,∞)}, n∈ℕ, which satisfies the local and long-range strong dependence conditions, extending the results obtained in Seleznjev (1991).
