Abstract

We prove a functional central limit theorem for additive functionals of stationary reversible ergodic Markov chains under virtually no assumptions other than the necessary ones. We use these results to study the asymptotic behavior of a tagged particle in an infinite particle system performing simple excluded random walk.
