abstract = {Negative association for a family of random variables $(X_i)$ means that for any coordinatewise increasing functions f,g we have
$ (X_\{i₁\},...,X_\{i_k\}) g(X_\{j₁\},...,X_\{j_l\}) ≤ f(X_\{i₁\},...,X_\{i_k\}) g(X_\{j₁\},...,X_\{j_l\})$
for any disjoint sets of indices (iₘ), (jₙ). It is a way to indicate the negative correlation in a family of random variables. It was first introduced in 1980s in statistics by Alem Saxena and Joag-Dev Proschan, and brought to convex geometry in 2005 by Wojtaszczyk Pilipczuk to prove the Central Limit Theorem for Orlicz balls. The paper gives a relatively simple proof of negative association of absolute values for a wide class of measures tied to generalized Orlicz balls, including the uniform measures on such balls.},
