Series of Hybrid Variables

  • Hao Hu

Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 54)


The concept of series of hybrid variables is introduced. Based on the convergence of hybrid sequences, some concepts of convergence of series are presented and their some relations are studied. Furthermore, equivalence between convergence almost surely and convergence in chance is obtained for series of globally weak independent hybrid variables.
