N2 - We give a sufficient condition for tightness for convergence of rescaled critical spatial structures to the canonical measure of super-Brownian motion. This condition is formulated in terms of the r-point functions for r = 2, …, 5. The r-point functions describe the expected number of particles at given times and spatial locations, and have been investigated in the literature for many high-dimensional statistical physics models, such as oriented percolation and the contact process above 4 dimensions and lattice trees above 8 dimensions. In these settings, convergence of the finite-dimensional distributions is known through an analysis of the r-point functions, but the lack of tightness has been an obstruction to proving convergence on path space. We apply our tightness condition first to critical branching random walk to illustrate the method as tightness here is well-known. We then use it to prove tightness for sufficiently spread-out lattice trees above 8 dimensions, thus proving that the measure-valued process describing the distribution of mass as a function of time converges in distribution to the canonical measure of super-Brownian motion. We conjecture that the criteria will also apply to the other statistical physics models cited above.
