A New Look at Independence

  title={A New Look at Independence},
  author={Michel Talagrand},
Abstract. The concentration of measure phenomenon in product spaces is a farreaching abstract generalization of the classical exponential inequalities for sums of independent random variables. We attempt to explain in the simplest possible terms the basic concepts underlying this phenomenon, the basic method to prove concentration inequalities, and the meaning of several of the most useful inequalities.
