Laws of large numbers for -statistics
Consider for order statistics and let for some (Lebesgue) -summable over function . Sufficient as well as necessary conditions for to hold almost surely and in probability are given. Superposition (or Nemytskii) operators have been used to derive the laws of large numbers for -statistics from the laws of large numbers in quasi-Banach function spaces for the empirical distribution functions based on .
