Summary: We study the correlation inequality in the Wiener space using the Malliavin and the fractional calculus. Under positivity and monotonicity conditions, we give a proof of the positive correlation between two random functionals $F$ and $G$ which are assumed smooth enough. The main argument is the Itô-Clark representation formula for the functionals of a fractional Brownian motion.
