Abstract: Let be a Borel function applied to a stationary, possibly long-memory, sequence of standard Gaussian random variables . Define the first passage time , for partial sums . Suppose has finite positive mean . When itself is positive or its negative part is under some moment conditions, it is proved that for as tends to infinity.
Key words and phrases: Elementary renewal theorem, first passage time, Gaussian sequence, long-memory, long-range dependence, self-similar.
