Towards a theory of negative dependence

  title={Towards a theory of negative dependence},
  author={Robin Pemantle},
The FKG theorem says that the POSITIVE LATTICE CONDITION, an easily checkable hypothesis which holds for many natural families of events, implies POSITIVE ASSOCIATION, a very useful property. Thus there is a natural and useful theory of positively dependent events. There is, as yet, no corresponding theory of negatively dependent events. There is, however, a need for such a theory. This paper, unfortunately, contains no substantial theorems. Its purpose is to present examples that motivate a… CONTINUE READING
