AN INVARIANCE PRINCIPLE FOR $U$-STATISTICS WITH THE DEGREE OF THE KERNEL DEPENDING UPON THE SAMPLE SIZE
CHANDRAKANT M. DEO, University of Ottawa
SUMMARY. We prove an invariance principle for $U$-statistics where the degree of the kernel is allowed to depend upon the sample size. As an immediate consequence, we obtain a functional from of a recent theorem by van Es and Helmers (1988).
AMS (1990) subject classification. 60F,62G.
