[Expand Summary]
The central limit theorem (CLT) asserts that the sum of a large class of independent random variables, each with reasonable distributions,is approximately normally distributed. Various versions of this theorem have been studied intensively. On the other hand, certain common forms serve as the basis of an extraordinary amount of applied work. In the statistics of large samples, the sample average is approximately normalâ€”whether or not the population distribution is normal. In much of the theory of errors of measurement, the observed error is the sum of a large number of independent random quantities which contribute additively to the result. Similarly, in the theory of noise, the noise signal is the sum of a large number of random components, independently produced. In such situations, the assumption of a normal population distribution is frequently quite appropriate
