Presented by: 
K Oleszkiewicz Uniwersytet Warszawski
Date: 
Friday 18th February 2011 - 14:00 to 15:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
We shall present a new approach to the comparison of moments for sums of independent symmetric random variables, based on Walkup's theorem which states that the binomial convolution transform preserves log-concavity. This is a joint work with Piotr Nayar.
