On the Kolmogorov inequalities for quadratic forms of dependent uniformly bounded random variables. (English) Zbl 1228.60039
Let \(\{X_i: i\geq 1\}\) be a sequence of nonnegative, superadditive, dependent and uniformly bounded random variables, and consider the weighted quadratic form \[ Q_n:= \sum_{1\leq i< j\leq n} a_{ij}X,\quad n\geq 2, \] where \(\{a_{ij}: 1\leq i<j\leq n\}\) is an array of real numbers. Some probability inequalities of Kolmogorov type are obtained for weighted quadratic forms. A number of examples are also presented to demonstrate the applicability of these inequalities.
