MSC: Primary 60F05; 60J05; 37A30; 37A05; secodary 47A35; 37A50 Keywords: Ergodic theorems with rates; Cetral limit theorem for Markov chais; Duford Schwartz oerators; Probability reservig trasformatios. Itroductio The motivatio for this aer was the search for a queched cetral limit theorem CLT) for additive fuctioals of Markov chais which will iclude the results of [7] ad [7]. We obtai the followig: Theorem. Let {X } 0 be a statioary ergodic Markov chai with state sace S, S), trasitio robability P, ivariat iitial distributio m, ad corresodig Markov oerator P o L S,m). For x S deote by P x the robability of the chai startig from x, defied o the roduct σ algebra of Ω := S N. Let f L S,m)with f dm = 0. If there exists τ>such that log ) 5/ log log ) τ su 3 P k f < ) the for malmost every oit x S the sequece fx k ) coverges i distributio, i the sace Ω, P x ), to a ossibly degeerate) Gaussia distributio N 0,σf) ) with variace σf) ideedet of x). Moreover, also the ivariace ricile holds.
2 Poitwise ergodic theorems with rate 7 The first geeral queched CLT of this tye seems to be that of Gordi ad Lifshitz i Sectio IV.8 of [6], which assumed f I P)L m). Our theorem imroves that of Derrieic ad Li [7], who assumed that P k f =O α ) for some 0 <α</, ad that of Wu ad Woodroofe [7], roved for f satisfyig log ) su β P k f < for some β>5/, uder the additioal assumtio that f L m) for some >. Both these results imly that of [3] obtaied ideedetly). Durig the rearatio of the reset mauscrit, after comletig our research, we discovered the rerit of Zhao ad Woodroofe [8]; their mai theorem imlies the queched CLT whe ) holds with τ>3/ which also imroves [7] ad [7]); however, the result of [8] does ot imly our result whe <τ3/ see Chater 5). Our strategy follows that of Derrieic ad Li. We first rove some ergodic theorems with rates, the use them to show that the error term i the martigale aroximatio teds to 0; the CLT for the martigale follows as show i [6]) from Brow s CLT. Our mai oitwise ergodic theorem with rate, used for rovig the queched CLT, may be of ideedet iterest: Theorem. Let T be the isometry iduced o L μ) by a ergodic robability reservig trasformatio. If f L μ) satisfies log ) 3/ log log ) τ su < 3 for some τ>, the 0 μa.e. The referee oited out that a differet sufficiet coditio was obtaied by Wu [6]. Wu s coditio does ot imly ours, ad i Chater 3 we will exhibit a examle i which our coditio holds while Wu s does ot.. O rates i the mea ergodic theorem It is well kow that i geeral there is o seed of covergece i the mea ergodic theorem for a owerbouded oerator T o a reflexive Baach sace X, ot eve for isometries of L iduced by robability reservig trasformatios; a fixed rate for a give T imlies that the averages coverge i oerator orm, ad the I T)Xis closed ad we have a rate of / e.g., see [4]). I geeral, oly coboudaries the elemets of I T)X) have covergece of the averages to 0 with rate of /. For 0 <α<, covergece to 0 of the averages with rate of / α was obtaied i [5] forαfractioal coboudaries, which are the elemets of I T) α X, with the oerator I T) α defied there by I T) α = I j= a α) j T j, where a α) = α ad a α) j = j! α j k α) are the coefficiets of the owerseries exasio t) α = j= a α) j t j for t. It is show i Corollary.5 ad Theorem.7 of [5] that f I T) α X imlies 0 for X reflexive), but i geeral the latter covergece imlies oly f I T) γ X for γ<α. α It is therefore of iterest to fid a growth coditio o, better faster) tha O α ɛ ), which still yields f I T) α X; we would like also to have i this case a rate i the ergodic theorem for h which satisfies f = I T) α h. Note also that sice there is o rate i the mea ergodic theorem, kowig oly f = I T) α h will ot give ay rate for h; a excetio is whe i fact f I T) α+ɛ X, which imlies that we ca take h I T) ɛ X. It was show i [5], Proositio.0, that covergece of j=0 b α) j coefficiets of t) α = j=0 b α) I T) α X. We will use the asymtotic behavior [9], vol. I,. 77) bα) Ɣα) α C α j T j f, with b α) j = j + )a α) j+ / α) the t j for t <, is sufficiet ad ecessary whe X is reflexive) for f to be i for some C>0, where Ɣ is Euler s fuctio. Whe α is uderstood, it will be coveiet to deote b α) simly by b. )
3 7 C. Cuy ad M. Li I the aer we will make use of regularly varyig fuctios. Followig [],. 76, we say that a ositive fuctio L, defied o a half lie [A, ), A 0, is slowly varyig at ifiity) if for every x>0, Ltx)/Lt), ad t + we say that a ositive fuctio Φ is regularly varyig with exoet ρ <ρ<+ ) ifφx) = x ρ Lx) for some slowly varyig fuctio L. The regularly varyig fuctios of articular iterest i this aer are Φx) = x ρ logx + c) γ. Lemma.. Let T be a owerbouded oerator o a Baach sace X ad let f X. If there exist 0 <α< ad a odecreasig regularly varyig fuctio Φ with exoet β>such that Φlog + )) α < +, 3) su the m 0 bα) m T m f coverges i X, to a elemet h I T)Xwhich satisfies f = I T) α h, ad for every, b m α) T m f C Φlog + )), m where Φx) := x du Φu) ), which is a odecreasig regularly varyig fuctio with exoet β. Proof. For the give α, we will deote b m α) Abel s summatio, k =j α T k ) f = S α + ) α + k α S k j α S j. =j By 3) ad ), there exists C such that k k b T f C =j =j k α + =j by b m.for, write S = m= T m f.fork>j> we have, by α C j α + Φlogj)) + = C j α + Φlogj)) + ) α Φlog + )) + Φlogj)) + Φlogk + )) k j logk ) logj ) ) dx xφlog x) du Φu) ). 4) Sice /Φ is regularly varyig with exoet β <, the lemma o. 80 of [] yields that Φ x) := x defies a fiitevalued regularly varyig fuctio of exoet β +, so Φ as defied i the theorem is regularly varyig with exoet β. The covergece of the itegral defiig Φ show that the righthad side of 4) coverges to 0 as k>j, so the series 0 b T f coverges. Lettig k i 4) gives a estimate for the tail of the series. By Lemma i [],. 77, /j α C 3 /Φlog j) for large j; by Theorem a) i [],. 8, comarig /Φ ad Φ yields that the middle term i the estimate is bouded by a costat mutile of the last term. Hece the asserted estimate for the tail holds. Remark. For Φx) = x β we have Φx) = β )x β ; i this case the roof of the lemma is direct. It is a atural questio whether we must have β> say i the case where Φx) = x β ). I the roof of Proositio 5.3a) see also c)), we give a ormal cotractio o L ad a fuctio f for which the result holds for α = /, with β>/. This motivates a imrovemet of the revious lemma whe the oerator is a ormal cotractio V i a comlex Hilbert sace H, which is give below. dt Φt)

By the sectral theorem e.g., [9,0,4]), there exists a uique ositive measure σ f o the Borel sets of the uit disk D, called the sectral measure of f, such that V f,f = D z σ f dz) for every 0, ad V k f = D z σ k f dz) = D z z z σ f dz). 5) We will use the reresetatio z = re iπθ with θ.for z, we clearly have z k z k mi, / r)). Covexity of x siπx/) o [0, ] yields x siπx/) for 0 x, so siπθ) θ for θ. Hece, for / r wehave z = r cosπθ)+ r = r) + 4r si πθ) 8θ. For z we have z k < < θ, so we fially obtai z k = z z z {, mi r, } z ). 6) θ As i [] ad [7], we wat to relate the rate V k f =O α Φlog+)) ), to the cocetratio of σ f at. We eed some otatio. For every defie { D := z = re iπθ : r, θ }. Notice that D is the uit disk D, ad m,, 6) yields z k mi, m) z D D m. 7) We ca ow reset the sectral characterizatio of coditio 3). Theorem.. Let V be a ormal cotractio o a comlex Hilbert sace H, let Φ be a mootoe regularly varyig fuctio ad 0 α<. The followig are equivalet for f H. i) There exists C > 0, such that, V k f C α Φlog + )) ii) There exists C > 0, such that, σ f D ), 8) C α Φlog + ))). 9) Proof. i) ii). Assume 8) holds. Let.

Let σ f be the sectral measure of f as above. Assumtio ) imlies 0, so f I T)H ad σ f {}=0. By ) ad the revious theorem there exists C>0 such that σ f D ) C α Φlog + ))). 4) By Proositio.0 of [5], if we rove that the series m 0 b mt m f coverges, the f I T) α H.

Hece k =j b T f C du log j ) / 0, so by Cauchy s criterio Φu)) m 0 b mt m f coverges i H. The estimatio for the tail of the series follows from the last iequality, sice by the lemma i [],. 80, x du Φu)) is regularly varyig with exoet β + ; hece Φ is regularly varyig of exoet β /. I case T is a isometry, we ote that by the uitary dilatio theorem [4], there exist a larger Hilbert sace H cotaiig H ad a uitary oerator o H such that for f H we have = EU k f for every k 0, where E is the orthogoal rojectio of H oto H. Sice T is a isometry, EU k f = f = U k f shows that U k f H, so i fact = U k f, ad the result for the isometry follows from alyig the above result to the uitary U. Remarks.. For Φx) = x β we have Φx) = β x β /.. It is ot ossible to imrove the coditio o β i Lemma.3. Ideed, the examle i [5],. 7, has a symmetric cotractio T o L [0, ] ad f L such that f / I TL, ad checkig the comutatios i the examle we have that 3) holds with Φx) = x so β = ) ad α =. The costructio i the roof of Proositio 5.3 may be alied to show the same heomeo with a Markovia symmetric cotractio. Theorem.4. Let T be a owerbouded oerator o a Baach sace X ad let f X.

I either case, by Lemma. or.3, the series h := 0 b T f coverges. It follows from Proositio.0 ad Theorem. of [5] that f I T) α X, ad that h is the uique elemet of I T)Xsatisfyig f = I T) α h. Moreover, by Lemma. or.3, b m T m f C Φ log + )), m 9) where accordigly Φ is a odecreasig regularly varyig fuctio, either Φ with exoet β, or Φ with exoet β /. Let us rove the estimates 7) ad 8).

Note that ϑ iduces a isometry T of L μ), hece we ca use Theorem.5 istead of Theorem.4 at the begiig of the roof of Theorem 3., this time with Φx) = x 3/ log x) τ, to obtai ). From that oit o the roof is exactly the same, takig = q = ad usig 9) istead of ). Remarks.. Oe ca see that Theorem 3.3 is valid for ay Duford Schwartz oerator T that is a isometry of L μ). However, there is a examle i [3],. 58, showig that Theorem 3.3 is ot true if oe assumes oly that T is uitary.. As metioed above, Wu [6] obtaied a differet sufficiet coditio, amely 8), imlyig the coclusio of Theorem 3.3. Whe τ>3/, 9) imlies 8). I the ext roositio we show a examle satisfyig coditio 9), with <τ<3/, but ot Wu s 8). Let {ε } Z L Ω, μ) be a sequece of strictly statioary martigale differeces e.g., i.i.d. cetered radom variables with fiite variace). For a sequece {a } l N), we defie the movig average sequece X := k 0 a kε k, which is strictly statioary, i.e., X = X 0 ϑ, with ϑ the shift associated with {ε }. Proositio 3.4. There exists a movig average {X } such that ad su log + )) 3/ log log + )) 5/4 X 0 ϑ k ) /3 =. X 0 ϑ k < 30) 3) I articular, Theorem 3.3 alies while Wu s coditio does ot hold. Proof.

Ideed, if we kow that the fuctio f is also i some L r, r>, we ca assume a smaller ower of the logarithm i ), ad the roof is also somewhat simler. The result below is isired by the argumets of Wu ad Woodroofe [7] whe = ) i the roof of their queched CLT. Theorem 3.5. Let T be a Duford Schwartz oerator o a robability sace Ω, μ). Let f L μ), >.

17 76 C. Cuy ad M. Li 4. A queched CLT for Markov chais We ow use our results to obtai a queched cetral limit theorem for additive fuctioals of statioary ergodic Markov chais. Let Px,A) be a trasitio robability o S, S) with Markov oerator Pgx) = gy)px,dy) defied o bouded measurable fuctios, ad let m be a ivariat robability for P, assumed ergodic. The ivariace of m ad the iequality Pgx) Pg )x) yield that P exteds to a cotractio of L m). LetΩ := S N be the sace of trajectories ad {X } 0 the corresodig Markov chai with trasitio robability P. The robability law of the chai is deoted by P m whe the iitial distributio is m, ad by P x whe the chai starts at the oit x S. We deote by ϑ the shift o Ω, which is measure reservig ad ergodic i Ω, P m ). For f L m), cosider S f ) = k=0 fx k). Theorem 4.. Let f L m), with fx)dmx) = 0. If there exists τ>such that log + )) 5/ log log + )) τ su P k f < +, 35) k=0 the σ f ) := lim E m S f ) ) exists ad is fiite, ad for malmost every oit x S, the sequece / S f ) coverges i distributio, uder the robability measure P x, to the Gaussia distributio N 0,σ f )) if σ f ) = 0, it is the Dirac measure at 0); furthermore, also the ivariace ricile holds. Proof. We basically follow the roof of [7] with the corresodig modificatios. Defie Φx) := x 5/ log x) τ, x>. For 0 <t< defie the Gree kerel G t = k 0 tk P k. By Abel summatio, G t = t) k 0 tk k j=0 P j, ad by assumtio G t f C t) k Φlogk + )) tk. k 0 By a Tauberia theorem see Theorem 5 i Sectio XIII.5 of []), with the slowly varyig Lx) := Φlog x)),for every 3 t< π G t f C t) / Φ log t) ). 36) Write ϕ t X 0,X ) := G t fx ) PG t fx 0 ).Wehave E m [ ϕs ϕ t ) ] = {[I + P )Gs f G t f) ][ I P )G s f G t f) ]} dm. Sice I P)G t = I t)pg t for 0 t<, we have I P )G s f G t f)= t)p G t f PG s f)+ s t)pg s f. By the Cauchy Schwarz iequality ad the triagle iequality, we obtai E m [ ϕs ϕ t ) ] I + P )Gs f G t f) I P )Gs f G t f) G s f + G t f ) [ t) Gs f + G t f ) + s t Gs f ]. Hece, usig 36) to estimate G t f for t,wehave [ su E m ϕs ϕ t ) ] / C s [t,+t)/] Φ log t) ).

To obtai the CLT we eed to estimate the residual term W := S f ) M. By costructio, I tp)g t f = f for 0 t<.

Sice W = k=0 f X 0) M) ϑ k ad τ>, we aly Theorem 3.3 to the fuctio fx 0 ) M L Ω, P m ) ad obtai that W 0 P m a.s., so for ma.e. x we have k=0 W 0 P x a.s. The ed of the roof is ow similar to [7],. 75. Remarks.. Sice P m = P x dmx), the queched CLT, with the variaces of the limitig Gaussia equal a.s. to σ ideedetly of x), imlies the aealed CLT for {fx )}: I the sace Ω, P m ), the sequece / S f ) coverges i distributio to the Gaussia distributio N 0,σ ) if σ = 0, it is the Dirac measure at 0); furthermore, also the ivariace ricile holds.
19 78 C. Cuy ad M. Li. Imrovig the result of [4], Maxwell ad Woodroofe [0] roved the aealed CLT, with variace of the limit σ f ) := lim E m S f ) ), uder the assumtio that 3/ P k f <. = The mai questio is whether this coditio is sufficiet for the queched CLT. 3. Sice 35) imlies 38), σ f ) is the variace i Ω, P m ) of the statioary martigale differeces M ϑ k. Corollary of [8] ad its roof show that 35) imlies also 38) lim su S f ) log log = σf) P m a.s. 5. O coditios for the CLT for Markov chais I this sectio we comare some of the coditios for the CLT. We use the otatios of the revious sectio: Px,A)is a trasitio robability o S, S) with ivariat robability m, assumed ergodic. The Markov oerator P the exteds to a cotractio of L m). We deote by {X } 0 the corresodig Markov chai o the sace of trajectories. For f L m) we defie S f ) = k=0 fx k). Let us recall: Proositio 5.. Let P be a Markov oerator as described. Let f L m). Assume that oe of the followig coditios is satisfied i) P is ormal ad f I PL m) [5,6]. ii) 3/ P k f < + [0]. iii) fp f coverges i L m) [3]. The {fx )} satisfies the aealed Cetral Limit Theorem. Remarks.. It is kow that for P ormal) ii) imlies i); i fact, ii) always imlies f I PL [8]. We will aswer the questio asked i [8], whether there exists a ormal Markov oerator P ad f L such that i) is satisfied but ot ii).. Coditio ii) was itroduced by Maxwell Woodroofe [0]. For geeral strictly statioary rocesses, the coditio reads 3/ ES X 0 ) < +, were S := k=0 fx k). It was roved by Peligrad Utev [] that it is sufficiet for the fuctioal CLT i that case. 3. Coditio iii) is due to Dedecker Rio [3], ad also has a aalogous sufficiet coditio for the geeral statioary case which esures the fuctioal CLT. Of course, iii) imlies P f,f 0, so if P has eigefuctios with uimodular eigevalues, they are coboudaries which do ot satisfy iii). 4. Coditios ii) ad iii) look differet i ature. We will rovide a examle of P mixig where ii) is satisfied but iii) is ot. Proositio 5.. Let P be a Markov oerator as above. Let f L m). Assume that oe of the followig coditios is satisfied: i log ) ) su 5/ log log ) τ / P k f < +, for some τ>. ii ) su α P k f < +, for some α</. iii ) There exists a ositive odecreasig slowly varyig fuctio l such that l) < + ad l) log) P k f < +. 3/ The {fx )} satisfies the queched Cetral Limit Theorem.
20 Poitwise ergodic theorems with rate 79 Remark. Coditio ii ) obviously imlies coditio i ), which clearly imlies ii). The queched CLT uder iii ) was obtaied by Zhao ad Woodroofe [8]. It is robably ot comarable to our coditio i ). We will rovide a examle where i ) is satisfied but iii ) is ot. Note that covergece of the secod series of iii ) ad mootoity of l imly ii). Coditio ii ) imlies iii ) with l) = log + )) +ε. I order to comare the revious coditios we will use the same symmetric Markov oerator P o L [0, ) := L [0, ), λ), where λ deotes the Lebesgue measure which geerates a reversible chai). Proositio 5.3. There exists a symmetric ositive defiite Markov oerator P o L [0, ) such that: a) There exists f L such that i) is satisfied but ii) ad iii) are ot. b) There exists f L satisfyig ii) but ot iii). c) There exists f L such that i ) is satisfied but ii ) ad iii ) are ot. Proof. We first costruct P.Letα R Q ad take P = 4 I + R α + R α ), where R α deotes the rotatio of the uit circle by the agle α. The irratioality of α makes P ergodic. Let f L [0, ], with Fourier exasio fx)= Z c e iπx. The for 0 x wehave P k fx)= Z + e iπα + e iπα ) k c e iπx = c cos k πα)e iπx. 39) 4 Z We will take α := e. I the roof of each art of the roositio, the aroriate fuctio f will be defied by its Fourier coefficiets {c } Z. I all these defiitios we take c = 0 if there is o k with =k!, ad c k! = c k! R, which makes f real valued. We will eed the followig lemma. Lemma 5.4. For every k, there exists l k N such that k ek! l k k ad for every k π, π k π cosπek!) 3k. Proof. For every k, defie l k := k! k j=0 j! N. Sice e = + j=0 j!,wehave Hece k + ek! l k! k k + )! + j=k+ k + )! j! k ek! l k k + ) /k + )) = k. = k + + s=0 ) s. k + Hece the first estimatio is true.

Remark. The examle of Proositio 5.3a) resets P symmetric with a fuctio f I PL m) which does ot satisfy ay of the other coditios, i articular oe of the coditios for the queched CLT. However, sice this is a examle of a symmetric) radom walk o orbits of a rotatio, the queched CLT holds for {fx )} by [8]. We metio that the geeral questio of Kiis ad Varadha [8], whether for every P symmetric ad f I PL m) the queched CLT holds for {fx )}, is still oe. By lookig at the twosided Markov shift, we see that the aealed CLT holds for f i the forward chai, govered by P, if ad oly if it does for f i the backward chai, which is govered by P. Whe P is ormal, all the coditios o f L, excet for coditio iii) of Proositio 5., hold with resect to P if ad oly if they hold with resect to P. We ow show that i geeral this is ot so. Let ϑ be the trasformatio of [0, ], defied by ϑx) = x mod for x [0, ), which reserves Lebesgue s measure. Let P be defied by Pg = g ϑ, for every measurable g; the P is a Markov oerator, ad P is give by P gx) = g x ) + gx+ )). Letf be defied by fx):= [0,/)x). Proositio 5.6. Let ϑ ad f as above. We have: i) m m 3/ P ) k f <, so f I P L. m ii) f/ I PL, so m m 3/ P k f =. m iii) 0 fp ) f coverges i L m), but 0 fp f does ot. Proof. Oe ca see that P f = 0, hece the series i i) coverges i L [0, ) ad f I P L. To rove ii) just ote that the rocess {f ϑ } 0 is the Rademacher sequece, hece the series P m f m m does ot coverge i L [0, ),sof/ Im I P. Obviously 0 fp ) f coverges i L m), sice P f = 0. Sice P is a isometry of L ad f, we have fp f = f =, so 0 fp f does ot coverge i L.
