### central limit theorem for a product

Given $-1\leq x_i\leq 1$ identically distributed random variables for $i=1,2,\dots n$. What is the distribution function of their product? Is there a central limit theorem for products if $n$ is large?...

### IID Random Variables that are not constant can't converge almost surely

I am trying to prove the following. If $\{ X_n \}$ are iid random variables and not constant, then $R:=P\{ \omega \mid X_n(\omega)\text{ converges} \}=0$ Using independence I know that by ...

### Hölder Continuity of Fractional Brownian Motion

I would like to prove the following theorem: Let $H\in (0,1)$. The fractional Brownian motion $B_H$ admits a version whose sample paths are $a.s.$ Hölder continuous of order strict less than $H$. ...

### Understanding the relationship of the $L^1$ norm to the total variation distance of probability measures, and the variance bound on it

I am trying to find a bound for variance of an arbitrary distribution $f_Y$ given a bound of a Kullback-Leiber divergence from a zero-mean Gaussian to $f_Y$, as I've explained in this related question....

### Do moments define distributions?

Do moments define distributions? Suppose I have two random variables $X$ and $Y$. If I know $E[X^k] = E[Y^k]$ for every $k \in \mathbb N$, can I say that $X$ and $Y$ have the same distribution?

### Expected value of max/min of random variables

I am trying to solve the following problem. Let there be $n$ urns and let us have $k$ balls. Assume we put every ball into one of the urns with uniform probability. Denote by $X_i$ the random ...
