New Limiting Distributions of Maxima of Independent Random VariablesM. Graça TemidoDepartment of Mathematics, University of Coimbra,Center of Statistics and Applications, University of Lisbon, PORTUGAL Abstract: This paper deals with the limiting distribution of the maximum, under linear normalization, of $k_n$ independent real random variables, where $\{k_n\}$ is a non decreasing positive integer sequence satisfying $\lim_{n\rightarrow+\infty}k_n=+\infty$. Keywords: extremes; stability; semistability. Classification (MSC2000): 60XX, 62E20. Full text of the article:
