Title: Talagrand’s Inequality and Applications
Abstract: We consider probabilities of deviations for functions, which depend on multiple independent random variables, from a certain value, usually the expected value. In order to find upper bounds for these probabilities one initially used approaches depending on martingales. In 1994, however, M. Talagrand showcased a new way to prove such concentration inequalities in his paper "Concentration of measure and isoperimetric inequalities in product spaces". This meant a significant progress in this subject and in many cases also provided better results than previous methods. The paper at hand presents this approach and thereby Talagrand's convex distance inequality as well as two proofs of it. Moreover, the variety of application possibilities of Talagrand's convex distance inequality will be demonstrated with the help of several examples such as Bin Packing and the traveling salesman problem.
