Abstract

Self-interacting diffusions are processes living on a compact Riemannian manifold defined by a stochastic differential equation with a drift term depending on the past empirical measure of the process. The asymptotics of this measure is governed by a deterministic dynamical system and under certain conditions it converges almost surely towards a deterministic measure (see Bena\"im, Ledoux, Raimond (2002) and Bena\"im, Raimond (2005)). We are interested here in the rate of this convergence. A central limit theorem is proved. In particular, this shows that greater is the interaction repelling faster is the convergence.
