    This paper establishes a central limit theorem and an invariance principle for a wide class of stationary random fields under natural and easily verifiable conditions. More precisely, we deal with random fields of the form Xk=g(εk−s,s∈Zd), k∈Zd, where (εi)i∈Zd are iid random variables and g is a measurable function. Such kind of spatial processes provides a general framework for stationary ergodic random fields. Under a short-range dependence condition, we show that the central limit theorem holds without any assumption on the underlying domain on which the process is observed. A limit theorem for the sample auto-covariance function is also established.
