Abstract

We study the last passage time and its asymptotic distribution for minimum contrast estimators defined through the minimization of a convex criterion function based on U-functionals. This includes cases of non-smooth estimators for vector valued parameters. We also derive a Bahadur-type representation and the law of iterated logarithms for such estimators.
