Abstract: We consider additive functionals defined on Markov chains that approximate a Markov process. Sufficient conditions are obtained for the convergence of the functionals. These conditions are expressed in terms of convergence of some conditional expectations (called the characteristics of the functionals) under general assumptions on the convergence of processes. Sufficient conditions for the uniform convergence of additive functionals are also given.
