A discrete version of the Brunn-Minkowski inequality and its stability

Michel Bonnefont (2009)

Annales mathématiques Blaise Pascal

In the first part of the paper, we define an approximated Brunn-Minkowski inequality which generalizes the classical one for metric measure spaces. Our new definition, based only on properties of the distance, allows also us to deal with discrete metric measure spaces. Then we show the stability of our new inequality under convergence of metric measure spaces. This result gives as corollary the stability of the classical Brunn-Minkowski inequality for geodesic spaces. The proof of this stability...

A geometric approach to correlation inequalities in the plane

A. Figalli, F. Maggi, A. Pratelli (2014)

Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilités et statistiques

By elementary geometric arguments, correlation inequalities for radially symmetric probability measures are proved in the plane. Precisely, it is shown that the correlation ratio for pairs of width-decreasing sets is minimized within the class of infinite strips. Since open convex sets which are symmetric with respect to the origin turn out to be width-decreasing sets, Pitt’s Gaussian correlation inequality (the two-dimensional case of the long-standing Gaussian correlation conjecture) is derived...
