We derive the limiting distribution of the barycenter bn of an i.i.d. sample of n random points on a planar cone with angular spread larger than 2π. There are three mutually exclusive possibilities: (i) (fully sticky case) after a finite random time the barycenter is almost surely at the origin; (ii) (partly sticky case) the limiting distribution of √nb
ncomprises a point mass at the origin, an open sector of a Gaussian, and the projection of a Gaussian to the sector’s bounding rays; or (iii) (nonsticky case) the barycenter stays away from the origin and the renormalized fluctuations have a fully supported limit distribution—usually Gaussian but not always. We conclude with an alternative, topological definition of stickiness that generalizes readily to measures on general metric spaces.
