Approximation by Penultimate Stable Laws
In certain cases partial sums of i.i.d. random variables with finite variance are better approximated by a sequence of stable distributions with indices \\alpha_n \\to 2 than by a normal distribution. We discuss when this happens and how much the convergence rate can be improved by using penultimate approximations. Similar results are valid for other stable distributions.
