Abstract: A probability distribution μ on Rd is quasi-infinitely divisible if its characteristic function has the representation μ̂=μ1̂∕μ2̂ with infinitely divisible distributions μ1 and μ2. In Lindner et al. (2018, Thm. 4.1) it was shown that the class of quasi-infinitely divisible distributions on R is dense in the class of distributions on R with respect to weak convergence. In this paper, we show that the class of quasi-infinitely divisible distributions on Rd is not dense in the class of distributions on Rd with respect to weak convergence if d≥2.
