Multivariate versions of Blomqvist’s beta and Spearman’s footrule. (English) Zbl 1093.62060
Summary: We define multivariate versions of the medial correlation coefficient and the rank correlation coefficient Spearman’s footrule in terms of copulas. We also present corresponding results for the sample statistic and provide a comparison of lower bounds among different measures of multivariate association.
