Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 234; 1999; 212 ppMSC: Primary 60; Secondary 62;
This volume contains 15 articles based on invited talks given at an AMS Special Session on “Stochastic Inequalities and Their Applications” held at Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta). The session drew international experts who exchanged ideas and presented stateoftheart results and techniques in the field. Together, the articles in the book give a comprehensive picture of this area of mathematical probability and statistics.
The book includes new results on the following: convexity inequalities for ranges of vector measures; inequalities for tails of Gaussian chaos and for independent symmetric random variables; Bonferronitype inequalities for sums of stationary sequences; Rosenthaltype second moment inequalities; variance inequalities for functions of multivariate random variables; correlation inequalities for stable random vectors; maximal inequalities for VC classes; deviation inequalities for martingale polynomials; and expectation equalities for bounded meanzero Gaussian processes. Various articles in the book emphasize applications of stochastic inequalities to hypothesis testing, mathematical finance, statistics, and mathematical physics.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians working in probability and statistics; statisticians, economists, physicists, and engineers.
