Convergence of Known Distributions to Normality or Non-normality: An Elementary Ratio Technique

This talk presents an elementary informal technique for deriving the convergence of known discrete/continuous type distributions to limiting normal or non-normal distributions. The technique utilizes the ratio of the pmf/pdf at hand at two consecutive/nearby points.

The presentation should be of interest to teachers and students of first year graduate level courses in probability and statistics.
