Acta Mathematica Hungarica
Authors: Jianfeng Wang and Lixin Zhang

## Summary

We provide uniform rates of convergence in the central limit theorem for linear negative quadrant dependent (LNQD) random variables.

Moreover, by the truncation method, we obtain a Berry--Esseen type estimate for negatively associated (NA) random variables with only finite second moment. As applications, we obtain another convergence rate result in the central limit theorem and precise asymptotics in the law of the iterated logarithm for NA sequences, and also for LNQD sequences.
