Abstract:

In this short note we study how well a Gaussian distribution can be approximated by distributions supported on $[-a,a]$. Perhaps, the natural conjecture is that for large $a$ the almost optimal choice is given by truncating the Gaussian to $[-a,a]$. Indeed, such approximation achieves the optimal rate of $e^{-\Theta(a^2)}$ in terms of t...More
