Abstract  

Let (Xk) be a sequence of independent r.v.’s such that for some measurable functions gk : RkR a weak limit theorem of the form

is also valid, where (dk) is a logarithmic weight sequence and DN = ∑k=1Ndk. In this paper we extend the last result for a very large class of weight sequences (dk), leading to considerably sharper results. We show that logarithmic weights, used traditionally in a.s. central limit theory, are far from optimal and the theory remains valid with averaging procedures much closer to, in some cases even identical with, ordinary averages.
