This paper proves a Berry–Esseen theorem for sample quantiles of strongly-mixing random variables under a polynomial mixing rate. The rate of normal approximation is shown to be O(n) as n→∞, where n denotes the sample size. This result is in sharp contrast to the case of the sample mean of strongly-mixing random variables where the rate O(n) is not known… (More)

A near-infrared fluorescent probe (Trp-Cy) for endogenous ozone is presented, which exhibited a large stokes shift about 140 nm and a rapid fluorescence response to ozone with high selectivity and sensitivity.
