# A simple proof of the Gaussian correlation conjecture extended to multivariate gamma distributions

@article{Royen2014ASP, title={A simple proof of the Gaussian correlation conjecture extended to multivariate gamma distributions}, author={Thomas Royen}, journal={arXiv: Probability}, year={2014} }

An extension of the Gaussian correlation conjecture (GCC) is proved for multivariate gamma distributions (in the sense of Krishnamoorthy and Parthasarathy). The classical GCC for Gaussian probability measures is obtained by the special case with one degree of freedom.

Nonsymmetric examples for Gaussian correlation inequalities

- Mathematics, Computer Science
- 2021

First, a specific case for a convex/log-concave correlation inequality for the standard multivariate Gaussian distribution is proved and it is proved that the max function is not symmetric about the origin, which implies that the variance of maxima of N i.i.d. standard Gaussians is decreasing in N.
