A functional central limit theorem for diffusions on periodic submanifolds of ℝ N

We prove a functional central limit theorem for diffusions on periodic sub- manifolds of ℝ N . The proof is an adaptation of a method presented in [BenLioPap] and [Bha] for proving functional central limit theorems for diffusions with periodic drift vectorfields. We then apply the central limit theorem in order to obtain a recurrence and a transience criterion for periodic diffusions. Other fields of applications could be heat-kernel estimates, similar to the ones obtained in [Lot].
