Title :Gaussian fluctuations for spin systems and point processes: Near-optimal rates via quantitative Marcinkiewicz’s theorem.
In this talk, He would like to introduce a broad, quantitative extension of the classical Marcinkiewicz’s theorem to establish central limit theorems (CLTs) with explicit rates of convergence. In particular, we obtain quantitative decay estimates on the Kolmogorov-Smirnov distance between a random variable X and a Gaussian under the condition that the characteristic function Ψ does not vanish only on a bounded disk. This leads to quantitative CLTs applicable to very general and possibly strongly dependent random systems with a near-optimal rate of convergence. Later, He will apply this method for two important classes of models in probability and statistical physics, namely, spin systems and α-determinantal processes. These applications demonstrate the significance of having to control the characteristic function only on a (small) disk, and lead to CLTs which, to the best of our knowledge, are not known in generality. This is a joint work with T.-C. Dinh and S. Ghosh.
