"Stochastic algorithms for computing means of probability measures".

Abstract : Consider a probability measure supported by a regular  
geodesic ball in a manifold. For any p larger than or equal to 1 we  
define a stochastic algorithm which converges almost surely to the p- 
mean of the measure. Assuming furthermore that the functional to  
minimize is regular around the p-mean, we prove that a natural  
renormalization of the inhomogeneous Markov chain converges in law  
into an inhomogeneous diffusion process. We give an explicit  
expression of this process, as well as its local characteristic.
