Central limit theorem (CLT) II.

he CLT was introduced on elementary level in the section ( Central limit theorem ). The calculation of that section has restrictive assumptions and the result lacks generality. Here we consider the issue with greater precision.

Let MATH MATH be a family of r.v. We assume that for each fixed $n$ the family MATH is independent. This chapter studies limiting distributions of MATH as $n\uparrow\infty$ .

We denote $f_{nj}$ and $F_{nj}$ the ch.f. and cumulative distribution functions of $X_{nj}$ respectively.

We think of sums MATH as quantities of similar magnitude even though the number of terms in these sums increases. We formalize such view in the following definition.


(Holospoudic) The family MATH MATH is called "holospoudic" if the following condition holds MATH


(Holospoudic criteria). The family MATH MATH is holospoudic iff MATH


First, we assume that MATH is true and proceed to prove the statement MATH .

We estimate MATH The last term tends to zero under the assumption MATH and MATH .

Next, we assume that MATH and prove MATH .

We invoke the proposition ( P.m. vs ch.f. estimate ): MATH where $2A=\varepsilon$ , MATH : MATH or MATH The desired statement follows from the above by the proposition ( Dominated convergence theorem ).
