We also remark that for the physical content of the model, it is practically unimportant whether we work on Rd or on its lattice approximation Zd . The reason is that we are investigating long time, large distance phenomenon; the short scale structure of the space does not matter. However, technically Zd is much harder (a bit unusual, since typically Rd is harder as one has to deal with the ultraviolet regime). If one works on Zd , then the Laplace operator is interpreted as the discrete Laplace operator on Zd , that is Random Schr¨odinger operators (Δf )(x) := 2d f (x) − f (x + e).

V (d) ). 8) in the uncorrelated case is modified to d ∂T fT (X) = Dij ∂i ∂j fT (X). d. components the covariance matrix is constant D times the identity, and we obtain the usual heat equation ∂T fT (X) = DΔX fT (X) where D is called the diffusion coefficient. 2 Markov processes and their generators Let Xt , t ≥ 0, be a continuous-time stochastic process, that is Xt is a one-parameter family of random variables, the parameter is usually called time. The state space of the process is the space from where Xt takes its values, in our case Xt ∈ Rd or Zd .

Analogous definitions hold in higher dimensions. Recall that we will have two scales: a microscopic and a macroscopic one. In this example, the microscopic scale corresponds to one step of the walking particle and we run the process up to a total of n units of the microscopic time. The macroscopic time will be the natural time scale of the limit process and it will be kept order one even as n → ∞. Recalling that we introduced ε 1 as a scaling parameter, we now reformulate the central limit theorem in this language.
