Positive Influence and Negative Dependence

  • DEVDATT DUBHASHI (a1), JOHAN JONASSON (a2) and DESH RANJAN (a3)
Abstract

We study negative dependence properties of a sampling process due to Srinivasan to produce distributions on level sets with given marginals. We give a simple proof that the distribution satisfies negative association. We also show that under a linear match schedule it satisfies the stronger condition of conditional negative association via a non-trivial application of the Feder–Mihail theorem. This method involves the notion of a variable of positive influence. We give some results and related counter-examples which might shed some light on its role in a theory of negative dependence.
