## Abstract

In 1992, Speicher showed the fundamental fact that the probability measures playing the role of the classical Gaussian in the various non-commutative probability theories (viz. fermionic probability, Voiculescu’s free probability, and qq-deformed probability of Bożejko and Speicher) all arise as the limits in a generalized Central Limit Theorem. The latter concerns sequences of non-commutative random variables (elements of a ∗∗-algebra equipped with a state) drawn from an ensemble of pair-wise commuting or anti-commuting elements, with the respective limiting distributions determined by the average value of the commutation coefficients. In this paper, we derive a more general form of the Central Limit Theorem in which the pair-wise commutation coefficients are arbitrary real numbers. The classical Gaussian statistics now undergo a second-parameter refinement as a result of controlling for the first and the second moments of the commutation coefficients. An application yields the random matrix models for the (q,t)(q,t)-Gaussian statistics, which were recently shown to have rich connections to operator algebras, special functions, orthogonal polynomials, mathematical physics, and random matrix theory.
