We analyze almost sure asymptotic behavior of extreme values of a regenerative process. We show that under certain conditions a properly centered and normalized running maximum of a regenerative process satisfies a law of the iterated logarithm for the lim sup and a law of the triple logarithm for the lim inf. This complements a previously known result of Glasserman and Kou [Ann. Appl. Probab. 5(2) (1995), 424–445]. We apply our results to several queuing systems and a birth and death process.
In the paper we consider higher-order partial differential equations from the class of linear dispersive equations. We investigate solutions to these equations subject to random initial conditions given by harmonizable φ-sub-Gaussian processes. The main results are the bounds for the distributions of the suprema for solutions. We present the examples of processes for which the assumptions of the general result are verified and bounds are written in the explicit form. The main result is also specified for the case of Gaussian initial condition.
