Abstract

This paper is concerned with the rate of convergence of the distribution of the sequence {Fn/Gn}, where Fn and Gn are each functionals of infinite-dimensional Gaussian fields. This form very frequently appears in the estimation problem of parameters occurring in Stochastic Differential Equations (SDEs) and Stochastic Partial Differential Equations (SPDEs). We develop a new technique to compute the exact rate of convergence on the Kolmogorov distance for the normal approximation of Fn/Gn. As a tool for our work, an Edgeworth expansion for the distribution of Fn/Gn, with an explicitly expressed remainder, will be developed, and this remainder term will be controlled to obtain an optimal bound. As an application, we provide an optimal Berry–Esseen bound of the Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MLE) of an unknown parameter appearing in SDEs and SPDEs.
