Abstract

Let $$X_1,\ldots ,X_n$$ X 1 , … , X n be i.i.d. random vectors in $$\mathbb {R}^d$$ R d with $$\Vert X_1\Vert \le \beta $$ ‖ X 1 ‖ ≤ β . Then, we show that $$\begin{aligned} \frac{1}{\sqrt{n}}\left( X_1 + \cdots + X_n\right) \end{aligned}$$ 1 n X 1 + ⋯ + X n converges to a Gaussian in quadratic transportation (also known as “Kantorovich” or “Wasserstein”) distance at a rate of $$O \left( \frac{\sqrt{d} \beta \log n}{\sqrt{n}} \right) $$ O d β log n n , improving a result of Valiant and Valiant. The main feature of our theorem is that the rate of convergence is within $$\log n$$ log n of optimal for $$n, d \rightarrow \infty $$ n , d → ∞ .
