On a conjecture of Talagrand on selector processes and a consequence on positive empirical processes

A BSTRACT . For appropriate Gaussian processes, Michel Talagrand (1987) proved that the event that the supremum is significantly larger than its expectation can be covered by a set of half-spaces whose sum of measures is small. We prove a conjecture of Talagrand that is the analog of this result in the Bernoulli- p setting, as well as a version of Talagrand’s result for general positive empirical processes.

A Proof of the Kahn-Kalai Conjecture

We prove the “expectation-threshold” conjecture of Kahn and Kalai.



Selector processes on classes of sets

Consider the random subset X of ℕ obtained by selecting independently each integer with a probability δ. Consider a finite class of finite sets. We describe a combinatorial quantity that is of the

A note on infinitely divisible processes

In this note we extend the result concerning suprema of infinitely divisible processes established by M. Talagrand to the processes for which we relax technical requirement called the

A simple proof of the majorizing measure theorem

We gieve a completely elementary proof of the existence of majorizing measures for bounded Gaussian processes. The proof relies upon Sudakov's minoration, the concentration of measure phenomenon, and

On the boundedness of Bernoulli processes

We present a positive solution to the so-called Bernoulli Conjecture concerning the characterization of sample boundedness of Bernoulli processes. We also discuss some applications and related open

Thresholds versus fractional expectation-thresholds

The 'axial' version of the random multi-dimensional assignment problem (earlier considered by Martin--M\'{e}zard--Rivoire and Frieze--Sorkin) is resolved and the Erd\H{o}s--Rado 'Sunflower Conjecture' is solved.

Binomial averages when the mean is an integer The following quietly memorable result, mentioned in [1] as a consequence of a theorem in [2], arguably deserves to be better known: 'Let X be a binomial

Improved bounds for the sunflower lemma

This paper improves the bound on the number of sets can be improved to c w for some constant c, and proves the result for a robust notion of sunflowers, for which the bound the authors obtain is tight up to lower order terms.
