Use of couplings in distributional convergence (Part2: Stein-Chen method)

Grigory Terlov (UIUC Math )

Abstract: At the end of the last lecture I presented two results due to C. Stein and L.H.Y. Chen that utilize couplings to prove convergence to Poisson distribution. These techniques allow for dependence among random variables and give explicit rate of convergence. In this talk I will explain the main idea behind Stein-Chen method and prove both of the theorems stated last time.
