Abstract [en]

It is well known that the central limit theorem holds for partial sums of a stationary sequence (X-i) of m-dependent random variables with finite variance; however, the limit may be degenerate with variance 0 even if var(X-i) not equal 0. We show that this happens only in the case when X-i - EXi = Y-i - Y-i for an (m - 1)-dependent stationary sequence (Y-i) with finite variance (a result implicit in earlier results), and give a version for block factors. This yields a simple criterion that is a sufficient condition for the limit not to be degenerate. Two applications to subtree counts in random trees are given.
