Let $\{X_i,i\geq1\}$ be a sequence of negatively associated random variables, and let $\{X_i^\ast,i\geq 1\}$ be a sequence of independent random variables such that $X_i^\ast$ and $X_i$ have the same distribution for each $i$. Denote by $S_k=\sum_{i=1}^{k}X_i$ and $S_k^\ast=\sum_{i=1}^{k}X_i^\ast$ for $k\geq 1$. The well-known results of Shao \cite{Shao2000} sates that $\mathbb{E}f(S_n)\leq \mathbb{E}f(S_n^\ast)$ for any nondecreasing convex function. Using this very strong property, we obtain…

Large deviation exponential inequalities for supermartingales

Let $(X_{i}, \mathcal{F}_{i})_{i\geq 1}$ be a sequence of supermartingale differences and let $S_k=\sum_{i=1}^k X_i$. We give an exponential moment condition under which $\mathbb{P}( \max_{1\leq k

A Comparison Theorem on Moment Inequalities Between Negatively Associated and Independent Random Variables

Let {Xi, 1≤i≤n} be a negatively associated sequence, and let {X*i, 1≤i≤n} be a sequence of independent random variables such that X*i and Xi have the same distribution for each i=1, 2,..., n. It is

Probability Inequalities

For a set A, let m A = inf{g(t); t ∈ A} for a positive function g. Then The Chebyshev inequality occurs by taking g to be function increasing on the support of X and A = [x, ∞), then m A = g(x),

A General Class of Exponential Inequalities for Martingales and Ratios

In this paper we introduce a technique for obtaining exponential inequalities, with particular emphasis placed on results involving ratios. Our main applications consist of approximations to the tail

Moment inequalities and weak convergence for negatively associated sequences

A probability inequality for Sn and somepth moment (p⩾2) inequalities for |Sn| and max 1⩽k⩽n | Sk| are established. Here Sn is the partial sum of a negatively associated sequence. Based on these

On McDiarmid's concentration inequality

In this paper we improve the rate function in the McDiarmid concentration inequality  for separately Lipschitz functions of independent random variables. In particular the rate function tends to
