A comprehensive introduction to the central limit theory-from foundations to current research
This volume provides an introduction to the central limit theory of random vectors, which lies at the heart of probability and statistics. The authors develop the central limit theory in detail, starting with the basic constructions of modern probability theory, then developing the fundamental tools of infinitely divisible distributions and regular variation. They provide a number of extensions and applications to probability and statistics, and take the reader through the fundamentals to the current level of research.
In synthesizing results from nearly 200 research papers and presenting them in a self-contained form, authors Meerschaert and Scheffler have produced an accessible reference that treats the central limit theory honestly and focuses on multivariate models. For researchers, it provides an efficient and logical path through a large collection of results with many possible applications to real-world phenomena. Limit Distributions for Sums of Independent Random Vectors includes a coherent introduction to limit distributions and these other features:

A self-contained introduction to the multivariate problem

Multivariate regular variation for linear operators, real-valued functions, and Borel Measures

Multivariate limit theorems: limit distributions, central limit theorems, and related limit theorems

Real-world applications
Limit Distributions for Sums of Independent Random Vectors is a comprehensive reference that provides an up-to-date survey of the state of the art in this important research area.
