This talk deals with suitable quantifications in approximating a probability measure by an “empirical” random probability measure \hat p_n, depending on the first n terms of a sequence \{\xi_i\}_{i\ge1}
of random elements. In the first part, we study the range of oscillation near zero of the p-Wasserstein distance d(p) .... See the link for the full abstract.
