Suppose X = (X1, . . . , Xn) is a random vector, distributed uniformly in a convex body $${K \subset \mathbb R^n}$$ . We assume the normalization $${\mathbb E X_i^2 = 1}$$ for i = 1, . . . , n. The body K is further required to be invariant under coordinate reflections, that is, we assume that (±X1, . . . , ±Xn) has the same distribution as (X1, . . . , Xn) for any choice of signs. Then, we show that$$ \mathbb E \left( \, |X| - \sqrt{n} \, \right)^2 \leq C^2,$$where C  ≤  4 is a positive…

Poincaré inequality in mean value for Gaussian polytopes
AbstractLet KN = [±G1, . . . , ±GN] be the absolute convex hull of N independent standard Gaussian random points in $${\mathbb R^n}$$ with N ≥ n. We prove that, for any 1-Lipschitz function

We show that for any $1\leq p\leq\infty$, the family of random vectors uniformly distributed on hyperplane projections of the unit ball of $\ell_p^n$ verify the variance conjecture $$
Berry-Esseen Bounds for Projections of Coordinate Symmetric Random Vectors
For a coordinate symmetric random vector $(Y_1,\ldots,Y_n)={\bf Y} \in \mathbb{R}^n$, that is, one satisfying $(Y_1,\ldots,Y_n)=_d(e_1Y_1,\ldots,e_nY_n)$ for all $(e_1,\ldots,e_n) \in \{-1,1\}^n$,
More on logarithmic sums of convex bodies
We prove that the log-Brunn-Minkowski inequality (log-BMI) for the Lebesque measure in dimension $n$ would imply the log-BMI and, therefore, the B-conjecture for any log-concave density in dimension
Spectral gap for some invariant log-concave probability measures
We show that the conjecture of Kannan, Lov\'{a}sz, and Simonovits on isoperimetric properties of convex bodies and log-concave measures, is true for log-concave measures of the form $\rho(|x|_B)dx$

Gaussian fluctuations for high-dimensional random projections of $\ell_{p}^{n}$-balls
In this paper, we study high-dimensional random projections of $\ell_p^n$-balls. More precisely, for any $n\in\mathbb N$ let $E_n$ be a random subspace of dimension $k_n\in\{1,\ldots,n\}$ and $X_n$
Some remarks about the maximal perimeter of convex sets with respect to probability measures
In this note we study the maximal perimeter of a convex set in $\mathbb{R}^n$ with respect to various classes of measures. Firstly, we show that for a probability measure $\mu$ on $ \mathbb{R}^n$,

Local Lp-Brunn-Minkowski inequalities for p<1
The $L^p$-Brunn-Minkowski theory for $p\geq 1$, proposed by Firey and developed by Lutwak in the 90's, replaces the Minkowski addition of convex sets by its $L^p$ counterpart, in which the support

A well-known consequence of the Brunn-Minkowski inequality, is that the distribution of a linear functional on a convex set has a sub-exponential tail. That is, for any dimension n, a convex set K ⊂

Antilla, Ball and Perissinaki proved that the squares of coordinate functions in $\ell_p^n$ are negatively correlated. This paper extends their results to balls in generalized Orlicz norms on R^n.
