Abstract We study precise conditions under which the cyclic regenerative confidence intervals of Sargent and Shanthikumar e asymptotically valid. We also obtain an optimal way of implementing the cyclic regenerative ariance reduction technique, and obtain a sufficient condition under which the procedure yields a lower variance than that of the standard regenerative method. Regenerative processes, variance reduction techniques Recently, Sargent and Shanthikumar [5] developed an interesting new variance reduction technique designed to exploit the stochastic structure associated with a cyclic regenerative process. Our purpose here is to study precise conditions under which the confidence intervals proposed in [5] are asymptotically valid. This analysis will provide us with the side benefit of obtaining an optimal way of implementing the
