Abstract:

This paper gives upper and lower bounds on the gap in Jensen's inequality, i.e., the difference between the expected value of a function of a random variable and the value of the function at the expected value of the random variable. The bounds depend only on growth properties of the function and specific moments of the random variable. The bounds are particularly useful for distributions that are concentrated around the mean, a commonly occurring scenario such as the average of i.i.d. samples and in statistical mechanics.

Abstract:

In this paper, we develop further the theory of trace bounds and show that in some sense that the earlier bounds obtained by various authors on the spectrum of symmetric positive definite matrices are optimal. Our approach is by considering projection operators, from which several mathematical relationships may be derived. Also criteria for positive lower bounds are derived.
