Abstract

Given a process $\{X_i\}$, any permutation $\sigma: \lbrack 1, n\rbrack \rightarrow \lbrack 1, n\rbrack$ determines an order statistical event $A(\sigma) = \{X_{\sigma(1)} < X_{\sigma(2)} < \cdots < X_{\sigma(n)}\}$. How many events $A(\sigma)$ are needed to form a union whose probability exceeds $1 - \epsilon$? This question is answered in the case of stationary ergodic processes with finite entropy.
