Let ξ=(ξn) be i.i.d.N(0, 1) random variables andq(x), q′(x):R∞→[0, ∞) be seminorms. We investigate necessary and sufficient conditions that the ratio ofP(q(ξ)<ε) andP(q′(ξ)<ε) goes to a positive constant as ε→0+. We give satisfactory answers forl2-norms and also some results for sup-norms andlp-norms. Some applications are given to the rate of escape of infinite dimensional Brownian motion, and we give the lower tail of the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process and a weighted Brownian bridge under theL2-norms.
