【摘要】：In this paper, an exponential inequality for the maximal partial sums of negatively superadditive-dependent(NSD, in short) random variables is established. By using the exponential inequality, we present some general results on the complete convergence for arrays of rowwise NSD random variables, which improve or generalize the corresponding ones of Wang et al. and Chen et al. . In addition, some sufficient conditions to prove the complete convergence are provided. As an application of the complete convergence that we established, we further investigate the complete consistency and convergence rate of the estimator in a nonparametric regression model based on NSD errors.
