Convergence in Lp.


The random variable belongs to the class MATH iff MATH . The quantity MATH is called the $L^{p}-$ norm. The sequence MATH converges in $L^{p}$ to $X\in L^{p}$ iff MATH .


(Convergence in Lp and in probability 1) If $X_{n}\rightarrow X$ in $L^{p}$ then $X_{n}\rightarrow X$ in probability.


By the formula ( Chebyshev inequality ) with MATH we have MATH and the claim follows.


(Convergence in Lp and in probability 2) If $X_{n}\rightarrow X$ in probability and $\exists Y\in L^{p}$ s.t. MATH for all $n$ then $X_{n}\rightarrow X$ in $L^{p}$ .


Fix a small $\varepsilon>0$ , then MATH The last expectation converges to 0 because MATH converges to 0.
