The moment index of minima (II)

Daley, Daryl; Goldie, Charles M.


The moment index κ(X) = sup {k: E(Xk) < ∞} of a nonnegative random variable X has the property that κ(min (X, Y)) ≥ κ(X) + κ(Y) for independent r.v.s X and Y. We characterize conditions under which equality holds for a given r.v. X and every indep
