## Abstract

For a sequence of i.i.d. mean 0 random variables {X, X_{n} ; n ≥ 1} with weighted partial sums S_{n} (X, w ({dot operator})) = ∑_{k = 1}^{n} w (frac(k, n)) X_{k}, n ≥ 1 where w (t), 0 ≤ t ≤ 1 is a Lipschitz function of order 1 with {norm of matrix} w ({dot operator}) {norm of matrix}_{2} = sqrt(∫_{0}^{1} w^{2} (t) d t) > 0, necessary and sufficient conditions are provided for X to enjoy iterated logarithm type behavior of the form 0 < lim sup_{n → ∞} | S_{n} (X, w ({dot operator})) | / sqrt(n h (n)) < ∞ almost surely where h ({dot operator}) is a positive, nondecreasing function which is slowly varying at infinity. Some corollaries are presented for particular choices of h ({dot operator}).
