2010 (English)In: Electronic Communications in Probability, ISSN 1083-589X, Vol. 15, 449-456 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We first give an example of a negatively associated measure which does not satisfy the van den Berg-Kesten inequality. Next we show that the class of measures satisfying the van den Berg-Kesten inequality is not closed under either of conditioning, introduction of external fields or convex combinations. Finally we show that this class also includes measure which have rank sequence which is not logconcave.
