On the asymptotic distribution of the multinomial maximum with an increasing number of classes
The multinomial maximum is of current interest in several areas of probability and statistics. In the present paper, the asymptotic distribution of the multinomial maximum with an increasing number of classes is discussed. With appropriate assumptions and a natural standardization, the limiting law is shown to be a Gumbel distribution.
