Abstract:

General properties of growth rates of moment sequences of nonnegative random variables are presented. Then asymptotic results on moment sequences are derived for two classes of distribution functions. Explicitly, let a monotone be increasing twice differentiable regularly varying function at infinity. A second class of distribution functions is defined. Finally, several examples are given to illustrate the possible different asymptotic growth rates of moments.
