By

PING CHEN, Southeast University

SUMMARY.  In this paper, we consider the limit points of the PL-type estimator under the competing risk case. Using method of strong approximation, we prove that the set of the limit points of some estimator sequence coincides with the unit ball of a reproducing kernel Hilbert space.
