Crash Course I: Regular Variation

Part of the Springer Series in Operations Research and Financial Engineering book series (ORFE)


The next two chapters are rapid overviews of two essential subjects: regular variation and weak convergence. This kind of material is sometimes relegated to appendices, which is an unloved practice requiring much paging forward and back. Readers who are familiar with these subjects will find these chapters reassuring collections of notation and basic results. Those readers with less familiarity should read through the chapters to gain some functionality with the topics without worrying about all details; they can return later to ponder details, get further references, and improve mastery as time and circumstances allow. Other treatments and more detail can be found in [26, 90, 102, 144, 260, 275].
