Abstract:

Suppose that n arcs with random lengths having distributions F1, F2, ...Fn are placed uniformly and independently on a circle. This article presents inequalities which tell how certain distributions and probabilities change as the variability of the distributions F1, F2, ...Fn is increased. A distribution F is considered to be more variable than G if integral hxdFx or integral hxdGx for all convex functions h. Author
