What random variable generates a bounded potential?

Received29 Mar 2002

It is known that if a predictable nondecreasing process generates a bounded potential, then its final value satisfies the Garsia inequality. We prove the converse, that is, a random variable satisfying the Garsia inequality generates a bounded potential. We also propose some useful relations between the Garsia inequality and the Cramer conditions, and different ways how to construct a potential.
