Doeblin's big limit theorem

  • Kai Lai Chung


Doeblin regarded his paper(2) as his hardest work. The big limit is that ofP(n)(x, E) asn tends to infinity, in a measurable non-topologized space. An exposition of part one of this paper was published in Ref. 1. This is the exposition of part two, which contains some reparation as well as clarification.
