From the text: A fine synthesis on interval expanding maps is made. The author proves the existence of invariant measures which are absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue measure for a larger class of expanding maps. Then she proves central and local limit theorems, gives the convergence rate and some conditions on the variance annihilation based on the periodic points of the map. The author makes precise these limit theorems by large deviation theorems. Finally she shows how to apply these theorems on various examples. This paper is an extension of the work of J. Rousseau-Egele [Ann. Probab. 11, 772-788 (1983; Zbl 0518.60033)].
In more detail, let \(f\) be a given function of bounded variation, denote \(S_nf= \sum_{k=0}^{n-1} f\circ T^k\) and \(\sigma^2= \lim_{n\to+\infty} \frac{1}{n} \int_0^1 (S_nf)^2h dm\geq 0\); if \(\sigma\) is different from zero, then the following is proved for \(S_n(f)\):
– a central limit theorem with convergence rate: \[ \sup_{v\in \mathbb{R}} \Biggl|hm \Biggl[ \Biggl\{ x\in [0,1]: \frac{S_nf(x)-nm(fh)} {\sigma\sqrt{n}}\leq v\Biggr\}\Biggr]- \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}} \int_{-\infty}^{t^2/2}e^{-t^2/2}dt \Biggr|\leq \frac{C}{\sqrt{n}}, \] – a local limit theorem: for each interval \(\Delta\) of \(\mathbb{R}\) of finite length uniform for \(z\in \mathbb{R}\), we have \[ \lim_{n\to+\infty} \biggl|\sigma\sqrt{n} hm \bigl[\{ x\in [0,1]: z+S_nf(x)- nm(fh)\in \Delta\}\bigr]- \frac{m(\Delta)}{2\pi} e^{\frac{-z^2}{2\sigma^2n}} \biggr|= 0. \]
