Abstract:

When kx,y is a quasi-monotone function and the random variables X and Y have fixed distributions, it is shown under some further mild conditions that EkX,Y is a monotone functional of the joint distribution function of X and Y. Its infimum and supremum are both attained and correspond to explicitly described joint distribution functions. Author
