Positive Linnik and Discrete Linnik Distributions
In this chapter, (continuous) positive Linnik and (nonnegative integer valued) discrete Linnik random variables are discussed. Rates of convergence and first terms of both the Edgeworth expansions and the expansions in the exponent of the distribution functions of certain sums of such random variables with nonnegative strictly stable as well as discrete stable limit laws are considered.
