Abstract: In the random left-truncation model, one observes only if , , , . The nonparametric maximum likelihood estimator aims at reconstructing the distribution function of from the observed empirical data. In this paper, strong approximations of the cumulative hazard process and product-limit process on increasing sets by sequences of copies of corresponding Gaussian limiting processes are constructed. The convergence rates are on fixed sets. Futhermore, strong approximations with two-parameter Gaussian processes are obtained with convergence rates on fixed sets.
