ConvergenceConcepts: Seeing Convergence Concepts in Action

This is a pedagogical package, designed to help students understanding convergence of random variables. It provides a way to investigate interactively various modes of convergence (in probability, almost surely, in law and in mean) of a sequence of i.i.d. random variables. Visualisation of simulated sample paths is possible through interactive plots. The approach is illustrated by examples and exercises through the function 'investigate', as described in Lafaye de Micheaux and Liquet (2009) <doi:10.1198/tas.2009.0032>. The user can study his/her own sequences of random variables.
