Superconvergence to freely infinitely divisible distributions

Hari Bercovici, Jiun-Chau Wang and Ping Zhong

Vol. 292 (2018), No. 2, 273–291

We prove superconvergence results for all freely infinitely divisible distributions. Given a nondegenerate freely infinitely divisible distribution ν, let μn be a sequence of probability measures and let kn be a sequence of integers tending to infinity such that μnkn converges weakly to ν. We show that the density dμnkndx converges uniformly, as well as in all Lp-norms for p > 1, to the density of ν except possibly in the neighborhood of one point. Applications include the global superconvergence to freely stable laws and that to free compound Poisson laws over the whole real line.
