Central limit theorems and invariance principles are obtained for additive functionals of a stationary ergodic Markov chain, say Sn = g(X1) + ⋯ + g(Xn), where E[g(X1)] = 0 and $E[g(X_1)^2] < \infty$. The conditions imposed restrict the moments of g and the growth of the conditional means E(Sn∣ X1). No other restrictions on the dependence structure of the chain are required. When specialized to shift processes, the conditions are implied by simple integral tests involving g.
