Building on earlier work introducing the notion of “modGaussian” convergence of sequences of random variables, which arises naturally in Random Matrix Theory and number theory, we discuss the analogue notion of “mod-Poisson” convergence. We show in particular how it occurs naturally in analytic number theory in the classical Erdős-Kac Theorem. In fact, this case reveals deep connections and analogies with conjectures concerning the distribution of L-functions on the critical line, which belong… CONTINUE READING
