# Probabilistic number theory II. Central limit theorems by P.D.T.A. Elliott By P.D.T.A. Elliott

During this quantity we research the worth distribution of mathematics services, permitting unbounded renormalisations. The tools contain a synthesis of likelihood and quantity conception; sums of self sustaining infinitesimal random variables taking part in an immense function. A imperative challenge is to make a decision whilst an additive mathematics functionality fin) admits a renormalisation by way of actual services a(x) and {3(x) > zero in order that asx ~ 00 the frequencies vx(n;f (n) - a(x) :s;; z {3 (x) ) converge weakly; (see Notation). unlike quantity one we enable {3(x) to turn into unbounded with x. particularly, we examine to what volume you could simulate the behaviour of additive mathematics capabilities through that of sums of swimsuit­ ably outlined autonomous random variables. This fruiful standpoint was once intro­ duced in a 1939 paper of Erdos and Kac. We receive their (now classical) bring about bankruptcy 12. next tools contain either Fourier research at the line, and the appli­ cation of Dirichlet sequence. Many extra subject matters are thought of. We point out purely: an issue of Hardy and Ramanujan; neighborhood houses of additive mathematics features; the speed of convergence of sure mathematics frequencies to the conventional legislation; the mathematics simulation of all strong legislation. As in quantity I the historic historical past of assorted effects is mentioned, forming an essential component of the textual content. In Chapters 12 and 19 those issues are really vast, and an writer usually speaks for himself.

LEMMA 2. Let c > 0, \$„ > 0 and n/ipn T «°, e„ i 0. Then we have 49 134 MATHEMATICS: K. L. CHUNG PROC. N. A. S. In order to evaluate \$(c\pn~l/') we shall consider the special case where each X, — =±= 1 with probability 1/2. In this case we find LEMMA 3. If an = 0 ( \ / « ) . then Pr(5„* < a„V«) = - -L r r — - exp. I 7T>=O2J + 1 \ — I + 8a„ 2 / 0 f-^7=) = T(an) + 0 ( - V ) w/fere T(aB) w defined by the series. The proof of Lemma 3 starts with a combinatorial formula due to Bachelier,5 and makes use of standard approximations together with a Fourier series transformation.

3. Generalization of Frechet's inequalities and related inequalities. Before proving our remaining theorems, we shall give a more detailed account of the general method which will be used. In the foregoing work we have already given two different expressions for the function pm(l, • • • ,n), namely, formulas (3) and (10), but they are not convenient for our later purposes. ,i's are related in magnitudes; while formula (10) has gone so far in the separation of the additive constituents that its application raises algebraical difficulties.

The number of such terms is the same on both sides. (u-i)'u , while those on the right-hand side, being of the form pu[---v{v where 0 ^ X ^ / 7 — 1 and (Ui, • • • , U\) is a combination out of (1, • • • , U — 1), are greater than or equal to it. Hence the result. 4. The p a i . ai]'s of the pi(vi, • •• , nVs.
