On the Borel-Cantelli Lemma and moments

Comment.Math.Univ.Carolin. 47,4 (2006) 669-679.

Abstract:We present some extensions of the Borel-Cantelli Lemma in terms of moments. Our result can be viewed as a new improvement to the Borel-Cantelli Lemma. Our proofs are based on the expansion of moments of some partial sums by using Stirling numbers. We also give a comment concerning the results of Petrov V.V., {A generalization of the Borel-Cantelli Lemma}, Statist. Probab. Lett. {67} (2004), no. 3, 233--239.

Keywords: Borel-Cantelli Lemma, Stirling numbers
