Title: A Limit Theorem for Random Matrices with a Multiparameter
Abstract: Based on multiparameter subadditive ergodic theorems of Akcoglu and Krengel (1981) and Schürger (1988) we derive an almost sure limit theorem for families of random matrices with a multiparameter which satisfy a supermultiplicativity condition. This extends results of Fürstenberg and Kesten (1960) and Kingman (1973, 1976) to the multiparameter case. It turns out that a Borel-Cantelli argument in Kingman (1973, 1976) has to be replaced by a projection argument involving subadditive processes with lower dimensional indices.
