Time-changed extremal process as a random sup measure
No Access Until
A functional limit theorem for the partial maxima of a long memory stable sequence produces a limiting process that can be described as a beta-power time change in the classical Fr'echet extremal process, for beta in a subinterval of the unit interval. Any such power time change in the extremal process for 0<beta<1 produces a process with stationary max-increments. This deceptively simple time change hides the much more delicate structure of the resulting process as a self-affine random sup measure. We uncover this structure and show that in a certain range of the parameters this random measure arises as a limit of the partial maxima of the same long memory stable sequence, but in a different space. These results open a way to construct a whole new class of self-similar Fr'echet processes with stationary max-increments.
