Rosenthal like inequality for weak $\mathbb L^p$-norms

Let $p$ be a real number greater than $1$. It is well known (see Hall and Heyde's Martingale limit theory and its applications, Theorem 2.10) that there exists a constant $C_p$ such that if ...

Approximation of an integral over the unit ball of L_1

For every $\varepsilon>0$ find a piecewise continuous function $q:[0,1]\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$ such that $\int_0^1 q(x)dx=1$ and $$\int_{0}^1 \int_{0}^{s} \left|\frac{q(s)q(t/s)}{s}- ...

Agreement of two topologies on a linear space

I'm dealing with the formalism of an abstract Wiener space, and I'm not sure if two relevant topologies coincide. Let $X$ be a topological vector space, and let $X^*$ be its dual space of continuous ...

Is the set of the absolutely continuous functions a Borel set of the space of the continuous functions?

Does anyone knows whether the set of the absolutely continous functions $F :[0,1]\to \mathbb{R}^d$ of the form $$F(t)= a + \int_0^tf(s) ds$$ where $f$ is an integrable function is a Borel set of the ...

Given that a conditional measure is Gaussian, how bad can the original measure be?

Let $X$ and $Y$ be Banach spaces, and let $\varphi : X \to Y$ be a continuous linear map. Suppose that $\mathbb P$ is a probability measure on $X$ which satisfies the continuous disintegration ...
