Non-central Limit Theorems

  • Péter Major
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 849)


Here we present some non-trivial limit theorems where the limit is a non-Gaussian self-similar field. The results of the previous chapters may explain at a heuristic level why such results should hold. But a rigorous proof demands much extra work whose consequences may be interesting in themselves.
