In [Ch. Stricker, Sémin. de probabilités XIX, Univ. Strasbourg 1983/84, Proc., Lect. Notes Math. 1123, 209-217 (1985; Zbl 0558.60005)] some special condition of “uniform tightness” type was introduced. Under this condition called UT a functional limit theorem for stochastic integrals has been recently proved by A. Jakubowski, J. Mémin and G. Pages [Probab. Theory Relat. Fields 81, No. 1, 111-137 (1989; Zbl 0638.60049)]. In the present paper conditions equivalent to UT are given. As a consequence the following limit theorem for solutions of stochastic differential equations is proved. Assume that \(\{ (H^ n,Z^ n)\}\) is a sequence of cadlag processes converging in distribution to \((H,Z)\) in the Skorokhod topology and that \(\{ Z^ n\}\) is a sequence of semimartingales satisfying UT. If \(f=f(x)\) is a bounded and continuous function, then a sequence of solutions of \(dX^ n = dH^ n+ f(X^ n)dZ^ n\) tends to a solution of \(dX = dH+ f(X)dZ\). Related results have been recently obtained by Th. G. Kurtz and Ph. Protter [Ann. Probab. 19, No. 3, 1035-1070 (1991)].
