### Supremum or upper bound of bivariate function involving logarithms and combinatorial coefficients or the gamma function over a region of the integers

This is a repost from MSE because I got no answers there. I have been trying to find the supremum of this bivariate function over a specific region. However, the expressions that I get are horrible. I ...

### Expectation of the inner product of a subset of two random orthonormal vectors

Setting: Consider sampling two orthonormal vectors $\mathbf{u},\mathbf{v}$ in $\mathbb{R}^p$ (where $p\ge2$) from a "uniform" distribution over the $p$-dimensional sphere (alternatively, ...

### Convergence in expectation of a discontinuous function

Consider a random variable $X\in \mathbb{R}^d$. Let ${\theta_m}$ be a sequence of real numbers that converge to $\theta$. Let $f(x,y)$ be a function that is not continuous. To be specific, fix, $x=a$, ...

### Bound the expectation of an average

Let $(a_n)_{n \geq 1}$ be random variables taking values on a finite subset $B$. Assume that $\nu_l(b) \le P[a_n = b\mid a_1,\ldots,a_{n-1}] \le \nu_u(b)$ almost surely for every $n \ge 1$ and \$b \in ...
