#### Abstract

Associated to the Bergman kernels of a polarized toric Kähler manifold $(M,\omega,L,h)$ are sequences of measures ${\lbrace \mu^z_k \rbrace}^\infty_{k=1}$ parametrized by the points $z \in M$. For each $z$ in the open orbit, we prove a central limit theorem for $\mu^z_k$. The center of mass of $\mu^z_k$ is the image of $z$ under the moment map up to $\mathcal{O}(1/k)$; after re-centering at $0$ and dilating by $\sqrt{k}$, the re-normalized measures tend to a centered Gaussian whose variance is the Hessian of the Kähler potential at $z$. We further give a remainder estimate of Berry–Esseen type. The sequence $\mu^z_k$ is generally not a sequence of convolution powers and the proofs only involve Kähler analysis.
