The domains of attraction of semistable laws on Rd and simply connected nilpotent lie groups

  • Yu. S. Khokhlov


We give a description of the domain of semistable attraction for random elements which take their values inRd or in a simply connected nilpotent Lie group. Our conditions are similar to those of Gnedenko-Doeblin for the case of a univariate stable limit law.
