Extremes of a class of non-stationary Gaussian processes and maximal deviation of projection density estimates
In this paper, we consider the distribution of the supremum of non-stationary Gaus- sian processes, and present a new theoretical result on the asymptotic behaviour of this distribution. We focus on the case when the processes have finite number of points attaining their maximal variance, but, unlike previously known facts in this field, our main theorem yields the asymptotic representation of the corresponding distribution function with exponentially decaying remainder term. This result can be efficiently used for studying the projection density estimates, based, for instance, on Legendre polynomials. More precisely, we construct the sequence of accompanying laws, which approximates the distribution of maximal deviation of the considered estimates with polynomial rate. Moreover, we construct the confidence bands for densities, which are honest at polynomial rate to a broad class of densities.
