Chapter 21. Strong limits related to the oscillation modulus of the empirical process based on the k-spacing process
Recently, several strong limit theorems for the oscillation moduli of the empirical process have been given in the iid-case. We show that, with very slight differences, those strong results are also obtained for some representation of the reduced empirical process based on the (nonoverlapping) k-spacings generated by a sequence of independent random variables (rv’s) uniformly distributed on $(0, 1)$. This yields weak limits for the mentioned process. Our study includes the case where the step $k$ is unbounded. The results are mainly derived from several properties concerning the increments of gamma functions with parameters $k$ and one.
