# Stein’s method on Wiener chaos

@article{Nourdin2007SteinsMO, title={Stein’s method on Wiener chaos}, author={Ivan Nourdin and Giovanni Peccati}, journal={Probability Theory and Related Fields}, year={2007}, volume={145}, pages={75-118} }

We combine Malliavin calculus with Stein’s method, in order to derive explicit bounds in the Gaussian and Gamma approximations of random variables in a fixed Wiener chaos of a general Gaussian process. Our approach generalizes, refines and unifies the central and non-central limit theorems for multiple Wiener–Itô integrals recently proved (in several papers, from 2005 to 2007) by Nourdin, Nualart, Ortiz-Latorre, Peccati and Tudor. We apply our techniques to prove Berry–Esséen bounds in the… Expand
