Before stating Hoeffding’s Inequality, we recall two intermediate results that we will use in order to prove it. One is Markov’s Inequality and other is Hoeffding’s Lemma. (Note that in class we did not cover Hoeffding’s Lemma, and only gave a brief outline of the Chernoff Bounding Techniques and how they are used to prove Hoeffding’s Inequality. Here we(More)
2 Granular jamming consists of constraining a large quantity of small particles within a membrane, similar to the use of hydrostatic and muscle forces in invertebrates to stiffen their bodies. However, current works on jamming have not examined the effect of coupling particles together, akin to connective tissue in animals. We present a study which provides(More)
