Abstract: The aim of this paper is to investigate the properties of the maximum of partial sums for a class of weakly dependent random variables which includes the instantaneous filters of a Gaussian sequence having a positive continuous spectral density. The results are used to obtain an invariance principle and the convergence of the moments in the central limit theorem.
