How can this happen in the first place? 79) The term (x − ????)2 tends to infinity as x → ±∞. This implies that if pR (x) does not decay fast enough as x → ±∞ then var[R] = ∞. 80) This distribution is symmetric with a bell shape about 0 but its variance (and all other higher moments of even order) is unbounded (∞). The latter can be easily reasoned by noting that for this distribution ???? = 0 and (x − ????)2 pR (x) = x2 ∕????(1 + x2 ) ∼ 1∕???? for large x and so its integral is unbounded. The estimator J̃ N in Eq.

Numerical convolution using the parent distribution estimated from samples also suffers from errors propagated through the process. Although it is generally difficult to obtain the exact distribution of J̃ N for finite N, a wellknown asymptotic result for large N known as the “Central Limit Theorem” is available and is adequate in typical applications. It can be shown that if var[R] < ∞ then J̃ N is asymptotically Gaussian as N → ∞. 83) where Φ(⋅) is the standard Gaussian CDF. The requirement var[R] < ∞ is quite natural because otherwise the corresponding Gaussian distribution is not even defined.

The Taylor approximation about the mean is therefore unlikely to be adequate. A logical improvement would be to first locate the region of major contribution and then approximate the integral based on the information there. This is the idea behind the Gaussian approximation to be described next. 3 Gaussian Approximation In many applications, the integrand r(x)q(x) in Eq. 1) has one or more peaks in the parameter space. Assuming that the main contribution of the integral comes from the neighborhood of the peak(s), we can first locate the peak(s) and then try to make use of information there.
