    convergence of iid

    I guess I can use LLN...

    Show that for any sequence X_1,\dots,X_n,\dots of iid random variables, \frac{1}{n^2}\sum_{i=1}^n iX_i\to \frac{m}{2} \;\;a.s. if and only if X_1 is integrable and \mathbb{E}[X_1]=m.


    Thanks.

    First center the random variables and then use Kolmogorov's Three Series and then Kroncker's lemma.
    You can actually quote the literature.

    I proved this type of result in my dissertation for non-independent stochastically dominated rvs a long time ago.

    I found the exact result (exact is a pun by the way).
    See Corollary 3 on page 128 from Chow and Teicher, which follows from Theorem 3.

    You should avoid the three series theorem, because we don't even want to mention having a second moment here.
