Doeblin’s big limit theorem. (English) Zbl 0786.60099

Summary: W. Doeblin regarded his paper [Ann. École Norm., III. Sér. 57, 61-111 (1940; Zbl 0024.26503)] as his hardest work. The big limit is that of \(P^{(n)}(x,E)\) as \(n\) tends to infinity, in a measurable non- topologized space. An exposition of part one of this paper was published by the author [Z. Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie Verw. Geb. 2, 230-254 (1964; Zbl 0119.346)]. This is the exposition of part two, which contains some reparation as well as clarification.
