A Generalized Inequality for Covariance and Its Applications
Abstract:
The research in this paper is intended as an attempt to motivate the work of Zhefei He and Mingjin Wang (An inequality for covariance with applications, 2015). More precisely, In this research we first provide a generalized inequality for covariance. And then, we present its applications to solve some problems about probability distribution. Finally, we state the conclusion and mention the relevant work in the future.
