# On a General Approach to the Strong Laws of Large Numbers*

Article

First Online:

A general method to obtain strong laws of large numbers is studied. The method is based on abstract Hájek–Rényi type maximal inequalities. The rate of convergence in the law of large numbers is also considered. Some applications for weakly dependent sequences are given.
