Mosco Convergence and Large Deviations
The techniques of convex analysis have come to play an increasingly important role in the theory of large deviations (see, e.g., Bahadur and Zabell, 1979; Ellis, 1985; de Acosta, 1988). The purpose of this brief note is to point out an interesting connection between a basic form of convergence commonly employed in convex analysis (“Mosco convergence”), and two theorems of fundamental importance in the theory of large deviations.
