SUMMARY:Hoeffding's Inequality for Sums of Weakly Dependent andom Variables
DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Sarat Babu Moka\n\nAbstract: \nLet X_1\, X_2\, ... \,
X_n be\, possibly dependent\, [0\,1]-valued random variables. The followin
g question is important: What is a sharp upper bound on the probability th
at their sum is significantly larger (or significantly smaller) than their
mean? We see the classical result by Wassily Hoeffding (1963) for indepen
dent random variables\, and generalize the result to several notions of
weak dependence between the random variables.\n
