Quantitative Limit Theorems for Local Functionals of Arithmetic Random Waves
We consider Gaussian Laplace eigenfunctions on the two-dimensional flat torus (arithmetic random waves), and provide explicit Berry-Esseen bounds in the 1-Wasserstein distance for the normal and non-normal high-energy approximation of the associated Leray measures and total nodal lengths, respectively. Our results provide substantial extensions (as well as alternative proofs) of findings by Oravecz et al. (Ann Inst Fourier (Grenoble) 58(1):299–335, 2008), Krishnapur et al. (Ann Math 177(2):699–737, 2013), and Marinucci et al. (Geom Funct Anal 26(3):926–960, 2016). Our techniques involve Wiener-Itô chaos expansions, integration by parts, as well as some novel estimates on residual terms arising in the chaotic decomposition of geometric quantities that can implicitly be expressed in terms of the coarea formula.
