A Functional LIL for m-Fold Integrated Brownian Motion*

  • Rongmao Zhang
  • Zhengyan Lin


Let {X m (t); tR +} be an m-Fold integrated Brownian motion. In this paper, with the help of small ball probability estimate, a functional law of the iterated logarithm (LIL) for X m (t) is established. This extends the classic Chung type liminf result for this process. Furthermore, a result about the weighted occupation measure for X m (t) is also obtained.
