Abstract

Let X1, ..., Xn constitute a random sample from a population with underpinning cumulative distribution function F (x). For any value 0 <α <1, we prove that under a condition of stable laws, the self-normalized product n1 / 2 α X1 X2 ... Xn / sqrt(∑* Xi12 ... Xin - 12) follows the same distribution as X1, where ∑* denotes the sum of over all permissible sequences of integers 1 ≤ i1 <i2 <⋯ <in - 1 ≤ n.
